It will never be know just how many men, women and children have died and lie buried in the bush. Many of the deaths were not registered, and they are known only because the local newspaper reported on them.

Roberta Morrison and Anne Alloway were brought up on stations in Hughenden region, Queensland and are very familiar with the history and names of the pioneers who settled in the region. This book is not 'just a list of remote graves and their burial sites', but rather an attempt to show people, their lives, and the hardships that they endured in the early years of settling north-west Queensland, together with a brief history of each property. Where there was an inquest, they were able to reconstruct events leading up to the person's death.

Men, women and children succumbed to the harsh conditions, dying of convulsions, poisoning, accidents amongst others.
