Green Mountains Reviews
This book is a little gem. Not only does it give a first hand account of the heroic rescue of the Stinson Airliner crash in 1937 but more interesting it details the pioneering days in the Blue Mountains in NSW and McPherson Ranges in QLD. Talk about tough people. The description of jungle bird life and the clearing of the farms is great.
This was one of the first books I read on arriving in Australia. It brings to life the wonderful flora, fauna and landscapes of Southern Queensland and Northern New South Whales. It is written by an unwitting naturalist and conservationist who was born on the small homestead his parents created in the lush forests of NSW. Growing up when everything was done by hand, no electricity, no cars... yet by the time he wrote this, the whole world had become more accessible. In 1937 a plane is lost, 2 pilots and 5 passengers, crashed en-route, Brisbane to Sydney. The multiple, arduous but failed searches have been abandoned. One man has another theory about where it went down and perseveres...
3.5 stars. The Rescue is the fantastic part of the book I give the rescue 4.5 stars, but it tends to drag a bit from there.. Looses some suspense and momentum when the book gets to the "Life in the Kanimbla valley" part. Here is one of my favourite quotes."This being so, why in the name of all that is sane and reasonable should a man go out to search nearly four hundred miles away from where the plane was last seen? That is what has puzzled most of the people whom I have met, and that, too, has given rise to the frequent question, "Was it a hunch or was it reasoning?" The answer must be, "it was not a hunch, nor do I believe that such a thing as a hunch exists." In ascribing my action to reasoning, I am not ruling out divine intervention. To me it seems that if God wished to intervene and save two men beyond ordinary aid, He would not neccesarily do so miraculously, nor would He inspire anyone with a blind unreasoning impulse to go and do His will, but it seems quite natural that He would inspire in a man the reasoning and initiative which would send that man out of his own accordl the fact that the man so chosen had spent most of his life in unwittingly fitting himself for just such a job seems to further indicate a clear purpose behind it all - that, of course, is the way it appears to me." Very well said Mr O'Reily.
This is a very interesting read. I read as I was interested in the search for the Stinson. Ilove the style of writing and also some history.My favourite was this unexpected paragraph;"Later, around dark, many more men came and joined the group about our smoky fires; prominent among these was the bearded, long‑haired figure of Charles Burgess, the Hermit of Lamington, who did splendid scouting work that day for Buchanan’s party. The Hermit dwells in a cave down on Christmas Creek, and lives almost entirely on corn which he grows, grinds into meal with a little hand‑mill and bakes on the coals in unleavened cakes. The one great precept of his simple religion is, “Thou shalt not kill,” and this he carries:out so thoroughly and sincerely that he refuses to wear leather boots, because they involve the killing of animals."
Outstanding read. Bernard O'Reilly tells it like it was - a humble, modest account of harder times when people had to rely on themselves for solutions. Also includes a first hand account of the Stinson rescue.
