Book review of Linda Rhodes' book Two for the Price of One, The lives of Mining Wives. Rhodes has documented the general aspects of life as experienced by mining wives and provided an in-depth critical analysis of one group of mining wives. She details the history of women in mining from its commencement in Australia’s early colonial period, through the years of large scale development and extreme change in the 1960s, 70s and 80s to very recent times from a range of source materials. The narratives of women who are wives of metallurgists, engineers and geologists compliment the source material presented. I conclude that Linda Rhodes book is an interesting read.
