Book Review - Mountain Men : Stories from the Australian High Country By Simon Cubit and Nic Haygarth

This book looks at the lives of ten men who chose to venture into the northern high country of Tasmania from the 1870s to the 1990s. These Mountain Men all contributed to its development of natural tourism and development in their own ways and each has a special story to tell. From hunters, mineral prospectors to horse riders they all had one thing in common, which was a true love for the Tasmanian high country.

I especially enjoyed the biography of Ray Miles the battle scared survivor, the resilience of these men was amazing. Anne
