New book on Tasmanian high country hut builders and pioneers

Written by Simon Cubit and Nic Haygarth, Mountain Men is a collection of biographies of ten ‘mountain men’ who lived or worked in the Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair high country from the 1870s to the 1990s.  These men are Dan Griffin, William Aylett, Gustav Weindorfer (Cradle Mountain), Paddy Hartnett, Bert Nichols, Ron Smith, Lionel Connell, Dick Reed, Ray Miles and Basil Steers. Chances are that if you’ve fished the Mersey Valley, Chudleigh Lakes, walked the Overland Track or Walls of Jerusalem National Parks, or stayed in Meston, Junction, Pine Hut Plain or Smurf Hut, then you’ve followed in the footsteps of these pioneers.
