(Study Guide) Hoover's Gold

Hoover's Gold is a documentary about a future US President, a West Australian goldfield, Italian migration, and the results of that mix in Australian History. In the remote goldfields of Western Australia - a land of 'red dust, black flies and white heat' - an ambitious young American geologist embarked upon a remarkable career that would ultimately lead him to the White House as the thirty-first President of the United States.

Hoover's Gold is a useful classroom resource for middle and upper secondary English in the areas of: Constructing a biography; Immigration and multiculturalism; Australian history seen through the case study of a community; and Understanding and analysing how filmmakers construct their product.
