No Humbug The pioneer educator Stuart Hawthorne MA Stuart Hawthorne Pioneer educator Stuart Hawthorne was Headmaster of Ipswich Grammar and Rector of Otago Boys’ High School. He held these appointments at a time of great social upheaval, when new secular schools were breaking away from centuries-old religious domination and the narrow focus on ‘classics’ was being displaced by a wider range of new ‘liberal’ subjects. This biographical account reflects on how he delivered the education that he had envisaged during difficult times. A very timely book considering the political emphasis on education today.

The Soldier’s Wall A Glimpse into their World Lyris Mitchell

The restoration of Brisbane’s City Hall was not

meant to be an archaeological dig. Unexpectedly, a number of artefacts of historical importance were discovered by the construction workers. In 2008, during the early stages of the renovation, a covered wall was found in the basement with the signatures of men who had enlisted into the Australian Army during World War II. The timing of this discovery was auspicious as it was made on the eve of the 70th anniversary of World War II.

Treasoned Argument Grant Hutchinson Shot down over the North African desert, Flight Lieutenant Owen Stanley is repatriated to his home town, Brisbane. It’s 1942 and the Japanese are threatening the Australian mainland. But Stanley has problems closer to home. Amid the friction created by the American presence he has been assigned to find out just why two Australian servicemen have turned up dead, so far from the front line. Stanley had thought he’d left the bloodshed behind, but his quest for answers will lead him to uncover an audacious Japanese plan and pit him against a group of compatriots bent on treason! Grant Hutchinson re-creates the historical setting realistically: the resentment of American troops, the prejudicial treatment of Aborigines and the mindset of Japanese soldiers. The Courier-Mail

Anne Alloway & Roberta Morrison It will never be known just how many men, women and children have died and lie buried in the bush. Many of the deaths were not registered, and they are known only because the local paper reported on them. It was not the selector who lost his life, but usually men who had no idea how harsh the country could be, and consequently took risks by walking between stations looking for work, most times with very little water, and not much idea of where they were going. The women followed their men, enduring the harsh conditions and sometimes not seeing another white woman for years. They died during child birth, usually the baby died as well. Young children succumbed to the harsh conditions, dying of convulsions, poisoning, and accidents.

Mary Messina

Thorn in My Heart continues the story of Tonia, a gentle

woman of courage, resilience and optimism. It epitomises her heroic capacity to selflessly endure great adversity for the children she loves more than herself. Her generosity of spirit permeates her story. Tonia’s ability to see good in all peoples and to hold on to optimism in the face of the incredible setbacks, provided valuable life lessons to her six children which, in the end, was the only legacy she could leave them.

Kajirri The Bush Missus

Australiana

Lexie Simmons

In 1948 young Adelaide girl Lexie Simmons went to live on the great Victoria River Downs station in the remote outback of the Northern Territory. Before she knew it she was married to a head stockman and thrust into the role of ‘bush missus’. There are books aplenty about legendary stockman, drovers and station cooks, but the equally legendary station ‘missus’ has been neglected. The ‘missus’ often endured great isolation, and had to master many skills – butchering cattle, salting beef, making bread, minor surgery, peace-keeping among the station Aborigines, cooking for fifteen or twenty, helping out in the bronco yard, killing the odd snake, and ‘managing’ some of the cantankerous white men who drifted through the outback.

In the Tracks of Old Bluey Bobbie Buckanan

Nat Buchanan was the first European to cross teh Barkly Tablelands from east to west and first to take a large herd of breeding cattle from Queensland to the Top End of the Northern Territory. Buchanan created a droving record when he supervised 20,000 head over this route. If he was an American they would build a Hall of Fame in his honour, but Australians haven’t heard of him. Ted Egan

Roping in the History of Broncoing Darrell Lewis This book sets out the evidence to answer to this question and outlines its development and spread from one side of the continent to the other. It’s an amazing and quintessentially Australian story, one of the many stories from Australia’s ‘hidden history’. It will be of great interest to all the men and women who have used the technique, to those who are now attending bronco branding competitions, to any who have wondered at an old bronco panel or a faded photograph of broncoing in action, and to all who are fascinated by Australian history.

John Flynn Ivan Rudolph John Flynn is one of Australias greatest folk heroes. His achievements are stuff of legend - no other Austrlian has had more monuments dedicated to him than John Flynn. Flynn established a network of cottage hospitals, flying doctors, patrol padres, welfare centres and radio transmitters to create a Mantle of Safety that would allow the Outbcak to be habitable for men, women and children.

Casting The Mantle Ivan Rudolph This is a book about John Flynn’s aim “angels” of the Australian outback in the early twentieth century and the vital roles they played in fulfilling his dreams for a “mantle of safety” over the isolation of the bush. Confronted by rough, tough, bush communities, these young woman from cities experienced culture shock we can barely imagine today. Epic, life-threatening journeys to minister to the sick were part of workaday life for those gallant woman and we can only marvel at their dedication.

Horsemen of the Outback Revised Edition

Australiana

Don J. Corcoran

This is an extremely well researched work which will be treasured by all horse riders. It is a very thorough account of Australian spurs and the bush blacksmiths like Fred Gutte who designed his on Wave Hill Station, but is is much more that that. If offers a romantic folklore of the horsemen who used the spurs in their sometimes dangerous and often lonely rides on the cattle stations between outback Queensland and the Kimberley.

From The Gulf, To God Knows Where Marion Houldsworth Charlie and Pauline Rayment wouldn’t live anywhere but the Outback. Charlie brought Pauline as a bride to ‘Kurran’, in the ranges of the Diamantina catchment. Pauline faced the wilderness while Charlie carved a property from the harsh environment. Few stories have been told, or will be told, with such vivid immediacy and disarming naturalness as Marion Houldsworth presents them here. Bill Gammage, ANU

This is the story of Ray’s ‘making something worthwhile’ of Urapunga, a rundown property on the Roper River.

They walked barefoot through the bindies to school. Their homes were bark-huts with ant-beds for floors. They harnessed their billy-goat carts to fetch wood and water. This earlier generation of North Queenslanders lived with floods and droughts. They knew grinding poverty and hard work, but they were proud of their independence, self-reliance and resilience.

The Morning Side Of The Hill Marion Houldsworth Vivid recollections capture and convey the very atmosphere of the times of school of games Sunday School picnics the very houses we lived in. I felt myself drawn back to my own childhood. The seemingly effortless writing and detailed descriptions of places and events are evocative of a remarkable period in Australian history. Nancy Armati - Townsville.

Jakc Drake

In this volume Drake, focuses on the famous pastoral explorers, drovers and trail drivers; the poddydodgers, horse-thieves and rustlers; the wars of the land grabbers with Australian Aborigines and the American Indians; the clashes of lawless western entrepreneurs with the laws of the bit cities in the east; the colourful females who ventured our into a man’s world and made thier names, the transport by puffing billies and famous stage coach lines and buckjumpers, roughriders and rodeos.


The Cattle Dog’s Revenge

Jack Drake

The Australian bushman’s sense of humour is legendary: dry, laconic and with a good bite. Jack Drake is one of Australia’s best writers and reciters of this comic bush verse. He also has a great sense of farcical and the crazy tall story. These are ballads and yarns you’ll want to ricite in the evenings on the verandah.

This book is written with great humor and insight. is describes some the worls’s most unusual wilderness adventures, giving the reader a glimpse of an outback that few will ever see. In record inland floods of 1974, he opened the fist boats down the kilometres wide Diamantina River (Warburton channel) to Lake Eyre, and completed the only crossing ever of the lake, travelling the full length from North to South.

Ten Thousand Campfires Rex Ellis

Ten Thousand Campfires, is a smorgasbord of Rex’s bush humour and his experience leading safaris in the Outback over a period of more years than he cares to remember. But he also gives hilarious accounts of the downto- earth tourist safaris that the down to earth tourist safaris that he led in Europe, Africa and India. outback wildlife gives him an excellent basis for a comparative study of crazy human behaviour.

The era covered is 1845-2003, but historian Lennie Wallace also tells us of early Chinese, Indonesian, Spanish and Portugese mariners and of many shipwrecks and daring escapes along its dangerous coastline.

Bitten by the Bull Bug Lennie Wallace Lennie’s first book Leaves from the Peninsula, sold every copy printed. Here is the long awaited sequel. This tells how Lennie set out to populate the Peninsula with little Wallaces and what she did when the stork came calling. But the real story is when Lennie gets into showing her prize bulls and daxxles the local okels in a guest form Grand Champion Ribbon. Lennie’s method of travelling around with prize beasties makes Dad & Dave and Ma & Pa Kettle look like amateurs. Bitten by the Bull Bug will have you rolling around on the floor.

Paroo River Life

Australiana

Mat Wolnicki This is the story of the Paroo River in Outback Queensland and New South Wales. Throughout this journey you will be thoroughly drowned, rattled, dusted and dehydrated as you arrive at homesteads, pubs, campfires and other yarning places. It is here that you will find that the Paroo River is no ordinary river.

Remember Cannon Hill John Gilfoyle When he moved back to Brisbane, John met up with a host of the characters who worked at the saleyards – stockmen, buyers, agents, clerks, butchers, contractors, a stock inspector, a journalist and a market reporter as well as a vendor who sold cattle there in 1933, and recorded all their stories for this book. A lively and sometimes humorous record of what really went on during the 60 years that the saleyards served the industry.

More Bloody Old Agents John Gilfoyle Twenty-five agents share their memories of what the agency business was like in the 40s, 50s and 60s - before bitumen roads, calculators, and mobile phones. Read about the loyalty and trust, the long distances and late nights, but above all, the fun they had and the friendships they made in the ‘good old days’.

And They Came to the Roma Saleyards John Gilfoyle This book will take you on a hair-raising journey from 1929 to 2005, from horse and carts to helicopters, and across the country from the Conondale Ranges around Kilcoy to Cloncurry and the Kimberley, form Moree to Mt Isa, and from the Murray River through the Channel Country and up to the Barkly Tableland. Along the way you’ll find rough horses, plenty of spills, battered vehicles and rum drinkers.

Tonia

Biography

Mary Messina Tonia begins in Sicily and portrays village life in the turbulent years of Post WWII. The village that had seemingly remained dormant for centuries was suddenly restless and on the move. Many had left, mainly for the cane fields of North Queensland; among them was Tonia’s husband, Enzo. Tonia recreates life in the village at the time and explores the raw emotions and soul searching associated with families being torn apart in the euphoria of new possibilities and new adventures. It is a story of struggle, pain, joy, hope and human perseverance; but above all it is a love story.

However, as readers of Diary of a Snake Whisperer will discover, a combination of intrusive snakes and distressed homeowners provides a unique recipe for frequent moments of humor. This is Adrian Walker’s account of a year in the life of a professional snake handler.

Maud Murphy uneasily awaits the arrival of Sinead, a young woman she has never met.

Never, Ever, Again… Why Australian Abortion Law Needs Reform Caroline de Costa In Never Ever Again, Caroline de Costa unearths many tragic records to show exactly what abortion meant for Australian women before the landmark Menhennitt judgment in Victoria and other legal cases opened the way for law reformers and enlightened doctors to provide safe accessible abortion. Although abortion law has been reformed or decriminalised in many Australian states and territories, it remains a crime in Queensland, New South Wales and other states.

RU486 Caroline de Costa RU486 is the drug prescribed for medical abortions. This book deals clearly with the nature and effects of the drug, its risks and the history of its development and use in Europe, the United States and other countries. It discusses the drug’s possibilities for use in the future – for medical abortion, but also for contraception and for the treatment of endometriosis, fibroids, and cancers of the breast and brain. RU486 is an important drug; RU486 the book is an important reference source for both women and men.

Tobruk’s Easter Battle 1941 John MacKenzie-Smith The initial Australian and British victory over Rommel’s Afrika Korps on Easter Monday 1941 at Tobruk was Germany’s first defeat in World War II. The vital actions of Queensland’s 2/15 Battalion on that day have been generally ignored. For the first time, this book details how this battalion delivered the final blow to the German infantry.

Ordinary Men Extraordinary Service Chris Lowndes The men of the 9th Battalion, a Queensland-based unit of the AIF, were among the very first wave of volunteers to enlist for war service, and were the first Australians to land at Gallipoli. For these young men reality would soon see their world turn upside down. This book follows these brave men through their experiences.

The Morning Side of the Hill Marion Houldsworth This is an account of life in wartime Townsville. Vivid recollections capture and convey the very atmosphere of the times of school, games, Sunday School picnics and the very houses we lived in. I felt myself drawn back to my own childhood. The seemingly effortless writing and detailed descriptions of places and events are evocative of a remarkable period in Australian history. Nancy Armati, Townsville.

Halfway to Hell Laurie Woods The content of this book are based on personal interviews, personal service stories among Laurie’s mates, members of the Royal Australian Air Force, and historic records of airmen who were mainly trained in the Empire Air Training scheme. The scheme was created to keep up a supply of trained aircrew to replace the immense numbers who were giving their lives. This book also tells of Australians among the heroic crews of Bomber Command and of their amazing courage and the record of achievement that is recorded forever in this history of Australian courage.

Flying into the Mouth of Hell Laurie Woods People who did not have the privilege of service in an active squadron overseas cannot appreciate the bond that existed between aircrew, which flew together “into the mouth of hell”. The book tells of one Tasmanian boy who became an aircrew bomb aimer and completed a full tour of operations among the heroic crews of Bomber Command. Air Commodore K.R. Parsons, C.B.E., D.S.O., D.F.C., A.F.C.

Winning from Downunder Noel Tunny Winning From Downunder discusses the three advantages, namely leadership, largesse, and luck, enjoyed by the U.S.A. and Australia that brought the Japanese conquest of South East Asia and much of the Pacific to an end. The book gives insights into the personalities of the senior leaders of the Allies as revealed by their own actions and by the opinions expressed by their contemporaries. When discussing the atomic bombing, the women who went to war, the heroism and the brutality of war, this book is faithful to Lord Byron’s belief that, ‘there are deeds that should not pass away and names that should not be forgotten.’

Diaries of a Stretcher-Bearer Donald Munro This is the story of a family that came to Australia before WWI and soon found itself deep in the war with four volunteer family members taking part. A day-to-day account of heroism of the stretcher bearers who went out into no-man’s-land and picked up wounded and dying men and struggled back to their own trenches through the glutinous mud while being shot at by German snipers even when they carried a white flag. The author’s steadfast spirit in finding, wherever possible, the lighter side of the war, is something not touched on in many war diaries.

The St Helena Story Jarvis Finger Several kilometres from the mouth of the Brisbane River lays St Helena Island. For more than 60 years from 1867, St Helena was home to thousands of society’s outcasts, for here was located colonial Queensland’s foremost prison for men. During those years, and in the decades following its closure in 1933, the lovely little island gained a fearful reputation as ‘the hell hole of the Pacific’ and ‘Queensland’s own Devil’s Island’ where men were reputedly ‘kept chained by day and night’, ‘flogged to death’ and ‘hurried under the sod while their oppressors turned on those still living’.

The Making of a Metropolis John R. Laverty Brisbane began as a disreputable convict establishment. All the same it was named after the governor of New South Wales, General Sir Thomas Brisbane. When Queensland was separated from NSW and Brisbane was incorporated as a municipality in 1859, its attributes ensured that it would become capital of the new colony. Despite the ravages of depressions in the mid-1860s and early-1890s, a high birth rate and a vigorous immigration policy produced a rapidly increasing population. Brisbane had reached metropolitan status by 1925. This is the untold story of Brisbane.

When Silvester Diggles arrived in Brisbane in 1855, there was little artistic or scientific talent in the small frontier town. By the time of his death in 1880, his paramount legacy was a large book on Australian birds, profusely illustrated with hand-coloured lithographs. Acting as his own publisher from 1865 onwards, Diggles produced the first substantial zoological work to commence publication in Australia. The compilation and content of this rare work of art and natural history is examined here in the light of Diggles’ life and times, as well as his ornithological predecessors and contemporaries.
