THE READING TRAIL


The Reading Trail at 131 York Street Sydney

This month we hit the reading trail with Craig:
"I read historian Peter Cochrane’s new novel set in the colonial settlement on the Hawkesbury River. It’s no place for the genteel or indolent. Violence, wrought by Nature or by man, visits just about everyone in his gothic tale. Great for lovers of the ‘western’ genre. The uneasy interactions with the indigenous men and women, warring and truces, feature strongly in the novel. And with some serendipity, Stephen Gapps has released his book that explores this conflict in the Sydney region."
