AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The short but eventful panorama of Australian history contains scenes as strange as any conceived by the imagination of the fiction writer. In this new series of stories the author of Wings Above the Diamantina and Winds of Evil re-tells in striking narrative some of the fantastic tales he has unearthed in old letters, ancient documents and forgotten diaries. Curious as they may seem, these things HAVE happened... (Publisher's blurb)
