Collected throughout the last decade of the twentieth century, these reminiscences of ‘Moreton Bay People’ provide a unique insight into the lifestyle of the Moreton Bay area during a particular time frame of history in the twentieth century.

Never again will we see a lazaret for lepers at Peel Island, a prison at t Helena, or a whaling station at Tangalooma. Hopefully, too, 'The Bay' will never experience another World War with its influx of foreign servicemen, or another Great Depression and its casualties seeking refuge in the bay's islands.

Between 1990 and 2000 author, Peter Ludlow, interviewed over eighty of the bay's "personalities' and then published their stories in a series of volumes titled 'Moreton Bay People. This volume is a collection of all of them together.

With its enhanced images, full indexation, and some more previously unpublished 'gems' this completely re-edited edition will prove essential reading to anyone - be they reference librarians, boaties with an interest in Moreton Bay or historians with an interest in the region and people.
