Written a few decades ago, but 'buried' as the manuscript was treated with disdain by the local shire at the time. In this important work, Rodger Jennings detailed the first 50 years of the Shire of York in Western Australia, in meticulous detail. Sadly Rodger passed away in 2003, and only now does his immense work get the printing that it deserves. But for those who have an interest in the people and history of York, this is a 'must have' title.
