Peel Island History, A Personal Quest

The ebook “Peel Island History, A Personal Quest”

Peel Island has continued to fascinate me since 1977 – the year I began my researches into its history. All my Moreton Bay books have contained Peel information as it became available – a very slow leaching indeed! Now for the first time I have collected ‘everything Peel’ into a single volume, which I have now published as ‘Peel Island History – A Personal Quest’, an eBook collection of all the material I’ve written about Peel Island in the last 45 years.
