Paynes Find, 400 kilometres north of Perth, is one of Western Australia's most isolated towns and to most people represents nothing more than a fleeting change in the scenery when travelling the Great Northern Highway.

It is an enigma and by rights should have gone the way of the ten or so gold mining towns that once dotted the Yalgoo district.

However, it owes it continued existence to that isolation, a centre kept alive by the mining and pastoral industries, each in turn, as their prosperity waxed and waned over the years, an oasis for them and the traveller.

This book contains the history and biographies of its people.
