Here's a message from the man himself ...

Bad Ground is the true story about the entrapment of myself and Todd Russell in the Beaconsfield gold mine in Tasmania 2006.

The highs were so high and the lows as deep as I've ever experienced. I never want to be in that position again, which is why I retired from underground mining. 

Journalist Tony Wright interviewed Todd, myself and our families within a fortnight of our 14-day entombment, and has captured our story and rescue in such a way that I could not put the book down until I'd read it from cover to cover. It was the same for my family and friends. 

The rescuers are my heroes, and once you read Bad Ground they will be yours too. I cannot thank them enough, because they reunited me back with my family. That's the greatest gift anyone can ever receive.

I thank Tony for all he has done for my family and for his tireless research on the rescuers. The effort and endurance of so many was inspirational.

It is a tribute to Tony that so many people have commented on what a great read Bad Ground is. They laughed and cried, too, and couldn’t put it down. 

I hope you'll be one of the lucky ones to experience the emotions of Tony’s writing.

Think safe. Be safe.

Kindest regards,

Brant Webb
