The Invisible Thread – The Story of Moonambel – By Merri Hogan

Note: no longer available for sale

From the Preface: “It includes material from A Hollow in the Hills, a limited edition souvenir book I wrote for the 125th anniversary of the Moonambel Primary School in 2000. It does not pretend to be a scholarly historical account, but I hope instead that it provides a brief introduction to Moonambel – an attempt to introduce my community and to express my affection for it.”
