    'This collection of writing from Port Curtis in Queensland by new and acclaimed writers shows how a region's literature can be descriptive of its spirit and unearth its past. It 'lifts the lid' on a history which has been kept all too secret.' - Back cover

    Explores a relationship between a collection of works whose writers are connected with the Port Curtis region and that region's history. It examines common influences and the place of memory and memory of place within that body of work. Includes works by, amongst others, Val Vallis, George Watt and Jena Woodhouse.
