This well-researched book describes the rich history of the Manning Valley, a hidden gem tucked away on the eastern coast of Australia. In doing so it paints a vivid picture of Australia before and after settlement, telling stories of the characters who left barren homelands to start a new life on the other side of the world.

Author, Max Solling also illuminates the conservation history of the Wingham Brush, the last remnant of ancient wilderness in the region, and details the fight for it's survival.
