Local writer Adrian Hyland has written one of the most significant accounts of the 2009 fires. We have copies for our great supporters.

Black Saturday was a many-headed monster in whose wake stories of grief, heroism and desolation erupted all over the state of Victoria. This is a book about the monster—and the heroism of those who confronted it.

Adrian takes a dramatic and compelling sequence of events on that day and weaves them into a picture of universal significance and deep fascination.
