Robert Gottliebsen Back Cover Material
This book will help Melbournians understand how their city came into being. Joy Braybrook tells the story in brief, easy to read chapters that provide compelling reading. I believe the current residents of the city that John Batman established will be the richer for understanding the history of their city and the remarkable role that he played in its earliest beginnings.
