Curious Tales of South Australia
ISBN 1 921008 59 8
This collection of fascinating tales about unusual South Australian happenings from the past follows on from the earlier series of four books – Curiosities of South Australia.
Topics cover a wide range, from incredible crimes to heart-warming achievements, from humorous mistakes to tragic events, from wild claims and hidden pasts to actions that simply would not happen in today’s world. For example, who these days would drop a tree over the city from an aeroplane, or walk 50 kilometres with a body strapped to his back?
And could an early South Australian really have lived to the age of 115?
