History Mysteries

Do you love mysteries? Do you love History?

Then look no further than the new series in our library……History Mysteries by Mark Greenwood.

Mark Greenwood is a history hunter. He enjoys searching for lost explorers and glittering treasure, solving famous cold cases and delving into Australian history’s most baffling mysteries.

 

 

 

On September 7, 1936, the last captive Tasmanian tiger dies alone and neglected in a Hobart Zoo. Since then many people claim to have sighted this amazing creature. Did the entire species vanish forever on that bleak night? No one can prove the tiger still exists, but could a determined searcher and modern science provide a glimmer of hope…

 

 

 

 

It’s 1930, and a man named Harold Lasseter claims to have found a massive gold reef in Central Australia. In the excitement that follows, he attempts to find it again. On his journey across the desert he buries maps and secret messages beneath the ashes of his campfires – before taking the mysterious location of the treasure to the grave…

 

 

 

 

In 1848 the famous explorer Ludwig Leichhardt sets out on an epic journey. His aim is to cross Australia from east to west, but he never reaches his destination and no one from his expedition is ever seen again. Countless search parties set out to look for the expedition but no trace is ever found. Until a young boy is given an artefact with an incredible story . . .

 

 

 

 

In March 1942, an aircraft prepares for a desperate midnight escape, taking refugees to safety in Australia. Just before take-off, the pilot is entrusted with a mysterious, wax-sealed package. But when the plane is shot down by the enemy and crash lands on the Kimberley coast, the package is forgotten. Until someone stumbles across the find of a lifetime . . .
