Shark Bay Pastoral Voices by Sue Graham-Taylor
Tells the story – past and present – of work and life in what is now the Shire of Shark Bay, through the voices of those who have lived on pastoral stations and worked in the area. The book covers island and mainland pastoral stations, the Overlander and Billabong Roadhouses and the Hamelin Pool Telegraph Station. It tells of the hard times and the good, of dealing with the elements, of isolation and community, of raising a family. It tells of a way of life. There are many voices – but one story. A story of commitment to, and respect for, a very special place.
