INTERVIEW: Sam Hazlett – 1969
PLACE: Palm Springs near Halls Creek WA
Near Sam’s House Palm Springs W.A.
NOTES : A prospector and contractor, Sam, now in his late fifties, has retired. He epitomises the independent bushman, refuses to ‘work wages’, and was one of the few we met who resembled the open-handed, homespun philosopher, battler stereotype. His stories range from his childhood in the wheat belt, through the centre as a prospector and the Eastern Goldfield, W.A.
