North Qld Deserted Towns Vol 2: Torres Strait - Cape YorkColin Hooper
In keeping with the first of the series, it includes not only the history, plans, and locations of the deserted towns and camps in that area but also covers stories and photographs of the unique area attributes.
In the case of Torres Strait-Cape York this covers the story of the Duifken and its replica, the annual tourist migration to the Cape, and Second World War airfields.
In Torres Strait it covers the unique islander traditions and stories from their past along with a photographic essay on the islands with a separate section on Thursday Island and the pearling industry.
This well presented hardback contains 177 photographs (81 colour) and 10 maps and plans over 55 pages, packed full of fascinating detail.
