Up Country by Garry Richardson | HB
The History of Goshen, Terryvale, Goulds Country, Priory, The Marshes, Pyengana, West Pyengana, Bullock Drivers and the Sawmills of the Municipality of Portland, North East Tasmania
This is Garry Richardson’s fourth book in his Portland Municipality Series. As with the first three publications, Tin Mountain (2013), Sail and Steam (2014) and Lottah and the Anchor (2016), Garry uses his research skills to create a comprehensive history of community life, this time focusing on Goshen, Goulds Country and the Pyengana area. The detailed text, complemented by an extensive collection of images and charts, affords readers the opportunity to engage in a diversity of stories and delve into the area’s rich past.
“Tales that recount personal tragedies along with the many triumphs are testament to the resilience of those who lived, worked and raised their families in what would be seen by todayʼs standards as pretty tough times.”
~ Tania Rattray Apsley, MLC
