"Born in 1903 to a pioneering Irish-Catholic family, Bernard O'Reilly spent his first twelve years in the secluded Kanimbla Valley of the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. The family then moved to the wild and largely unexplored McPherson Ranges in southern Queensland. Here the innate O'Reilly pioneering spirit eventually succeeded in establishing a haven for guests in the midst of a rain-forest paradise. Bernard O'Reilly died in 1975.
Green Mountains recreates the events surrounding Bernard O'Reilly's heroic search for and discovery of the survivors of the Stinson wreck. In the second part of the book, O'Reilly tells of the family's move to Queensland from the Blue Mountains of New South Wales and their work in establishing the Guest House at Green Mountains." - Goodreads
