Visiting Melbourne cemeteries, 'Grave Tales: Melbourne Vol. 1' tells the stories of everyday people who willingly or unwillingly, were participants in events that made local and national headlines. They may have lived in the same suburbs, streets, and even the same houses as exist now in towns and cities along the way, and finished their days in cemeteries in Melbourne. These are tales of early settlement, unsolved murders, love lost, mystery, tragedy, health epidemics, scandal and sacrifice. 'Grave Tales' reveals more than the headstone can ever convey by tracing the tumultuous journeys that lead to these final resting places. This is number seven in the awarded and popular 'Grave Tales' series.

Learn the origins of the unlikely band of heroes who must ultimately overcome their dark and destructive natures to fight the myopic armies of Heaven and Hell. Bear witness as Queen Gethsemoni struggles with the burdens associated with wearing the crown. Watch as Kier, the Valkyrie of the Dead, hunts for angels … only to find a much more savage adversary.

It will never be known just how many men, women and children have died and lie buried in the bush. Many of the deaths were not registered, and they are known only because the local paper reported on them. It was not the selector who lost his life, but usually men who had no idea how harsh the country could be, and consequently took risks by walking between stations looking for work, most times with very little water, and not much idea of where they were going. Many of the men were suffering from alcohol related problems. Most deaths were caused by fever, accidents, suicide, and murder. The women followed their men, enduring the harsh conditions and sometimes not seeing another white woman for years. They died during child birth, usually the baby died as well. Young children succumbed to the harsh conditions, dying of convulsions, poisoning, and accidents.

As the country to the north of Australia was being explored and taken up by men from Victoria and New South Wales hoping to make their fortune, other men were making their way out west, also keen to make good. Sesbania was one of the earliest selections taken up by John and James Nisbett. Douglas Harper was working on Sesbania, when he shot himself, whether accidentally or purposely is unknown. He was an Overseer, and died on 12th November, 1878. This is the earliest recorded death in this book. William Russel Myers was a shearer probably working on Manuka, or making his way there. He died from exhaustion and thirst on 3rd December, 1878. George Laxton who was a blacksmith, died at Mills Creek, also from thirst and exhaustion. He was probably walking to the next job, but died on 16th February, 1879, and was buried at Mills Creek, on Manuka. These three were just the beginning of dozens of men, women and children who lost their lives through thirst, exhaustion, accident, fever and murder.
