What did it take to build the mighty Warragamba Dam? More than a mountain of concrete........gambling and fights and the ladies of the night, class distinction, rorts and wrangles, the infamous six o'clock swill, death danger, and hard yakka, dirt, floods, fire and sweat and hardships suffered by the pioneer work force and their families. This is one man's reminiscences of his experiences working at the Warragamba Dam construction site from 1946 to 1960. Recounting his experiences with colloquial vigour, Red Morgan entertains with innumerable anecdotes of great times and mateship had by a hard working, hard playing work force. Born into a poor working class family in Swansea, South Wales in 1925 and having spent most of his life in Australia, Red Morgan captures here the rough - and - tumble side of a vital episode in Australia history.
