Australia is the sum total of its people, with a story behind every person. This tells 1001 of those stories. It includes the factual, concise account of the lives of people from all walks of life, from polititians, pop stars, Nobel Laureates, thinkers, singers, sporting identities, criminals and clergy to name just a few.

In the most interesting chapter, 'Crime and Law', Creswell and Trenoweth have managed to take a neglected area of Australian history and compile a wealth of crims and cops whose entries leap off the page. From the gruesome Frances Knoor (the 'Baby Farmer') to Sir Redmond Barry (the man who hanged Ned Kelly), this section is fascinating and unique.
