Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0522847838, Hardcover)

This highly appealing and beautifully illustrated book tells in a lively and evocative fashion the story of the much-loved Mount Buffalo region in Victoria. Opening with a wonderful description of the ancient geological formation of the area, it goes on to discuss its thousands of years of use by Indigenous Australians, as a place for summer gatherings and feasting on plump Bogong moths. The story continues with the history of the early European settlers; a marvellous account of Ferdinand von Mueller's studies of the flora of the region; fascinating descriptions of twentieth-century 'progress' with the discovery of gold and the coming of the railway and the motor car; and the environmental and conservation history of the Buffalo Plateau, from the Tatra controversy of the 1950s to the present.

The story is enriched and enlivened by vivid oral history accounts by older Mt Buffalo locals. Illustrated with magnificent historic and contemporary photographs, this is a splendid read for anyone who has fond memories of Mt Buffalo and the surrounding region.
