Abstract:

"Routes over the Takak Hill have varied since surveyor Charles Heaphy and his party first recorded the crossing in 1843, and this book outlines the changes from the first rough walking tracks to the sealed ... state highway today's travellers are familiar with. The geology, flora and fauna of the hill, the history of its mail coaches and service cars and the engineering challenges of the last few decades all have their place ... but the real focus ... is on the people on the Hill, the roadmen, the drivers, the farmers, the quarrymen and the families who chose to live high on the marble mountain"--Cover.
