For almost a century, drovers moved cattle along the Murranji Track, despite scarce water, jungle-like scrub and its reputation as the Death Track.
In this well researched and detailed book author and historian, Darrell Lewis, provides the definitive account of the track, from the time of the Aborigines and early explorers, to its opening by the legendary Bluey Buchanan, and the beginning of the great droving era in 1904 to it’s demise in the 1960s. It deals with attempts to establish stations in the area, the deaths along the track, the exploits of cattle duffers, the record dry stage set by the Farquharson brothers, legends of lost gold mines, and the famous Bagman’s Gazette – the messages, drawings and notices written on the stock route water tanks by the drovers and other travellers.
If you want to know the true history of this fascinating and legendary stock route, the ghost road of the drovers, this book is a must buy.
