Mount Kare Gold Rush
is an intriguing and controversial historical account of enduring value. It will rise to the scrutiny of historians and the challenge of time, and has been published using the finest materials to ensure its place in the best private and public libraries.
"Andi Flower, a young man from the genteel suburbs of New Zealand, sets out for a life of adventure — and finds himself in the middle of a fabulous gold rush in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. His beautifully told story is one of giant multinational companies, incomprehensible and murderous tribal politics, political corruption, and the attempts of all and sundry to get a slice of the billion-dollar action. This self-published gem is a revealing account of what greed can do in a struggling Pacific nation."
Mark was a journalist in Papua New Guinea and advisor to former PNG Prime Minister Mekere MorautaSean Dorney
"Fantastic. This is a tale that needed to be told for the many lessons it holds for all who are truly interested in helping Melanesia progress."

"A must read for anyone doing business in PNG or seeking a personal insight into the trials and outright personal danger of dealing with the “wantok” attitude behind much of this beautiful ‘Land of the Unexpected’s’ corruption
and moral decay."

"Andi Flower’s story is a must read. A courageous, brutally frank and absorbing account of corruption, the abuse and use of power, violence and downright evil during a critical time in Papua New Guinea’s history"
