FROM THE FOREWORD
'Kim-Maree has cast the net wide to find those stories. Yes, she talks about the great and the good, but the best tales are about the ordinary people of the town. The people who, with little fuss and bother, got on with the quiet lives helping to make Mount Isa a better place. In telling their stories, that is what Kim-Maree Burton has done too – help make Mount Isa a better place.
This book is a valuable addition to the social history of this tough, but great town. Reading about the highs and lows of the people in this book makes me believe Mount Isa – and the North West Star which serves it – will bounce back again.' -
Derek Barry, EDITOR - THE NORTH WEST STAR
