Abstract:

"Tasmania - Isle of Splendour, is yet another of his [Bill Beatty's] books that can be enjoyed more than once because its pages are packed with enthralling material. There are wondrous tales of the pioneers, bushrangers' escapades, mutinies, shipwrecks, grim stories of convict canibals. But the author shows that Tasmania is not merely a history-drenched island. We see it today as a Mecca of holidaymakers with its scenic charms and many tourist attractions, its fast growing economy resulting from the State's important position as one of the world's greatest fruit growing countries, its soundly-based heavy industries, and the harnessing of immense water resources for electric power."--Dust jacket.
