This book was published in 2000 and records the story of Robert and Maria Hay.  I’ve tried with no real success to get a copy of this book.  If anyone is able to help me secure a copy I would be most appreciative.

  1. I’ve found a way to order the book through https://copiesdirect.nla.gov.au/items/import

    National Library of Australia.

    Doesn’t seem any bookstores have it.

    Good luck – There is another book by the same author called ” A long road to Hobart Town: Robert Hays story”

    Apparently both these books are available directly from author:

    Jean Turner:
    4/19 Barr St, Myrtle Bank, SA 5064

    Best of luck! I also will be purchasing these too books with the hope they give some wonderful insight into life for the Hay’s!
