The Australian continent has challenged us with its mysteries since the earliest days of settlement. In this unique book John Pinkney chronicles the most tantalising of these true stories:
- Unexplained disappearances on land, at sea and in the air.
- Mysterious murders whose motivation and method have defeated the keenest investigative minds.
- Mystifying phenomena, including the Min-Min globes that have baffled generations of Australiansàthe immense tusked 'beach blob' that perplexed Tasmania and the scientific worldàthe spinning lights which for years have haunted a Victorian valley.
- Scientific riddles, from the space object that drilled a tunnel into a NSW dam floor, to Queensland's 'forgotten footprints' and the stones that rained for months on a WA farmhouse.
These pages offer you enthralling insights into the profoundest mysteries to have puzzled Australians across two centuries.
