Abstract:

The Black Saturday bushfires killed 173 people? wreaking a greater human toll than any other fire in Australia's history. Ten of those victims died in Steels Creek, a small community on Melbourne's outskirts. It was a beautiful place, which its residents had long treasured and loved. By the evening of 7 February 2009, it felt like a battlefield. Prize-winning historian Peter Stanley tells the dramatic stories of this small piece of country on that one terrifying evening? of epic fights to save houses, of escapes, and of deaths. He also tells the tale of a community? of people's attachmen.
