The story of Australia is full of ‘turning points’ that created our present lifestyle.  Some were the result of pure chance or mischance.  Others came through sudden inspirations or decisions, accidental discoveries, or determined efforts.  All of them influenced the making of Australia and the way we think and feel today. Our everyday actions, our economy, and our national character all owe something to these turning points.  This splendid book portrays, in words and paintings, fifty-nine of the turning points which fashioned Australia.”
