“Freestone: A Mostly True History” is a book that captures the incredible fortitude, courage, and foibles of the men, women, and children who built the village of Freestone, Queensland, Australia. Established in 1862 by English, German, Swiss, Scandinavian, and Irish immigrants, Freestone was built out of dense bush country and grew to become a prosperous village known for its musicians and larrikins, farmers and dancers. It weathered tragedy and disaster, two World Wars and such droughts, fires, plagues, and epidemics that would test the mettle of even the most stalwart settler. Through it all, Freestone residents survived, adjusting to each new change in economy, weather, and relationships, finding ways to thrive as a community. This is their story.
