Details

The small Hawkesbury village of Brooklyn has been home to an astonishing number of colourful characters and incidents. The author, drawing upon oral and written records, has brought together a number of these in a whimsical but sometimes sombre volume of stories based on fact. Many of the stories turn upon the vagaries of human relationships, while others relate to tragic events such as World War I and the level crossing accident. But they all portray a time when life was much less hurried and local communities were more closely knit than is the case today. The book provides an entertaining snapshot portrait of the early days of life along the Lower Hawkesbury.

Soft cover, B5, iv + 44 pages, illustrations, maps, sources, index.
