Here are stories from Australia's dark heart: of catastrophe and misfortune, intrigue and passion, betrayal and tragedy. Some you may think you know, others, you have never heard of, but all the stories in AUSTRALIAN TRAGIC will capture your imagination. They range across our past and our present: the heartbreaking story of the fire at Luna Park the unstoppable opportunist who snatched innocent men and women from Palm Island to be part of P.T. Barnum's 'Greatest Show on Earth' a world-class boxer who lost his battle with alcohol and ended up in an unmarked American grave Steve Irwin, who was written off as a joke by the media, only to be hailed as a hero on his sudden death and a man who heroically survived a war to find himself crushed and defeated by events much closer to home. Heartbreaking and shocking, gothic and weird, these fascinating stories are all true, and told to remind us of the Australia we don't know, the one that simmers with love and hate, of hopes raised and futures dashed, unheralded and unnoticed ... until now.
