Of the party of eight who ran Jimmy Governor to ground in October 1900, six were Laurie Moore's forebears. Laurie and his wife Dianne have spent the last decade tracking down the story of the Governor outbreak, travelling the country where the drama was played out, talking to locals, sifting the written evidence, meeting the descendants of the Governors and their pursuers. Laurie grew up in Kyogle, taught science in high schools and earth sciences at Macquarie University, and is currently a water resources consultant. Researching and writing Australian history continues to be his special interest. Stephan Williams has been a weigh-bridge operator, social worker, IT researcher, golf-course groundsman and film researcher, among other occupations. His primary interest has always been to travel the neglected byways of history, writing about the 'footnote characters' of colonial Australia,. Among his many publications are studies of convicts and folk song, bushrangers and poetry, social history and colonial culture.
