|Author:||Helen Goltz; Chris Adams; Joanne James (Editor)|
Ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events are captured in 'Grave Tales: Queensland's Great South West'. Visiting cemeteries from Ipswich to Augathella, 'Grave Tales: Queensland's Great South West' tells the stories of everyday people who willingly or unwillingly, were participants in events that made local and national headlines.
They may have lived in the same suburbs, streets, and even the same houses as exist now in towns and cities along the way, and finished their days in cemeteries in Queensland.
These are tales of early settlement, unsolved murders, love lost, mystery, tragedy, health epidemics, scandal and sacrifice. Grave Tales reveals more than the headstone can ever convey by tracing the tumultuous journeys that lead to these final resting places.
This is number six in the awarded and popular Grave Tales series, this book travels from Ipswich to Augathella including Gatton, Toowoomba, Nobby, Goondiwindi, St George, Roma and Charleville.
