Cyclone Tracy is a historical work that adeptly chronicles personal viewpoints from what is still considered Australia's worst natural disaster. Over 40 years later and the stories are vividly recounted and are remarkably linked by threads of similar experiences and impressions. Although I had the privilege of submitting my story, reading all the other stories made me feel connected across time to those who also endured this life shattering event. Although over 40 years have passed since Tracy wreaked havoc on Darwin, the sense of being at the complete mercy of the most destructive shrieking onslaught of wind and feeling that my family and I would not get out of it alive, has never strayed from my memory. Patti Dunn Roberts has done a wonderful job of compiling these stories, and photographs accompany every story making this a great book to pick up at different times or one that can be read through in one or two sittings. She has not sanitized any of the stories making this a raw and compelling book. Highly recommended reading!
