This book is a collection of virtual time-travellings back to Australias past. Australian History Live! is a compelling look at Australian history using first person accounts as reported in the press and in journals and diaries. Included in the collection are gripping accounts of occasions both great and minor. Here you can find the heart wrenching account of a bewildered little terrier dog refusing to leave the bayoneted dead body of its master just killed at the Eureka Stockade. Read an amazing description of Bert Hinkler landing his absurdly tiny little aeroplane (hed just flown it across the world in a world-record time) on the straight at Flemington Racecourse. Share scientist Francis Ratcliffes experience of being caught and shaken by a very wild willy-willy.
