Just like California, Australia had its own gold
rush in the 1860s. Would-be prospectors flocked to the gold fields,
and businesses grew up around the mining camps. Among the new
businesses were stage coach lines, with many smaller firms competing
against the biggest name in the industry, Cobb & Co. This series
features life at one of the stage coach stations, Five Mile Creek, located
at 40 miles north of Sydney.
- This series was based on a novel by Louis L'Amour. It
followed the format first set in the anthology episode The Cherokee
