Australia's Greatest Disasters by John (John Frederick) Miller

Book Description

Australia is a land of extremes where searing heat and devastating floods can both take their toll. It is also a land of vast distances, leaving it vulnerable to calamities at sea, by rail and in the air. 'Australia's Greatest Disasters' charts the events that have caused not only tragic loss of human life, but also economic and environmental devastation. From Cyclone Tracy and the Ash Wednesday bushfires to the Granville train disaster and the 1998 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, these are the disasters that made headlines around the nation and became forever part of the Australian identity.
