The jarrah and karri forests in the south-west of Western Australia are dotted with the remnants of abandoned sawmilling towns. Shannon was one such town; built during the years immediately following the Second World War and closing unexpectedly and suddenly in 1968. Now there are only a few remaining signs of the mill and townsite.Peter’s book brings new life to the culture and spirit of a vibrant community, introducing family, friends and townsfolk with sincere clarity and good humour. Relive the hope and happiness of an isolated country-town way of life on the stage of a harsh bush environment. This book contains a heart-warming collection of memories depicting a time of genuine community spirit; something yearned for in today’s society.
