Kangaroo Ground Tales

A volcanoe under the Kangaroo Ground memorial tower and other myths are explored in a new book published by the Andrew Ross Museum, "Auld Duncan's Kangaroo Ground Tales." Author Mick Woiwood said he reinvented himself as the son of a school principal, Sandy McClusky, to narrate the stories. "Although it's in the genre of historical novels, it's really straight history," Mr Woiwood says. "Duncan, a fictional character, lives in Kangaroo Ground. He's a story teller, he's been there since day one".

The book was recently launched at the Hurstbridge Wattle Festival and will also be launched on Sunday october 8.

Copies now available at Eltham and Diamond Valley libraries.
