A fine account of the early years of Rockhampton, revised and reprinted in 1904 from articles that appeared in 'The Morning Bulletin' and 'The Capricornian'.
 

A fine account of the early years of Rockhampton, revised and reprinted in 1904 from articles that appeared in 'The Morning Bulletin' and 'The Capricornian'. A glance at the Contents below will show how wide ranging this book is.

 This book is particularly valuable as the original articles on which it is based were compiled while many of the pioneers were still alive. "Though, in some instances the history of people and institutions has been brought up to date [1904], the articles have been largely confined to the story of the town up till 1870."

This searchable ebook opens up the wealth of information in this important record. The original book did not even have an index!
