BLACK SATURDAY is a tale of everyday people who, when fate demanded, became heroes. In Kinglake, Peter Thorneycroft stood defiantly in shorts and thongs hosing down the roof of the local pub where 20 women and children sheltered inside. In Marysville, five policemen saved the lives of countless residents as they ignored burning embers raining from the sky and ushered them to the safety of the local cricket oval. The fires also brought a new-found resilience. Those most affected by the fires have found hope amongst the ash - for a brighter, safer tomorrow. This book is the personal story of Black Saturday told by those that survived the flames and those who came to their help. It also contains accounts from journalists who covered the fires as well as first-hand tales from those who helped co-ordinate the emergency response.
