On all sides, it was embedded in a richly Indigenous world. Over the next few years, mostly from across New South Wales northern plains, a large push of pastoralists poured into the Darling Downs, Lockyer and much of southern Queensland, establishing huge sheep stations. The violence that erupted welded many of the tribal groups into an alliance that, by 1842, was working to halt the advance. The Battle of One Tree Hill tells the story of one of the most audacious stands against this migration. It concerns actions engineered by a father and son, Moppy and Multuggerah. In 1843, this culminated in an ingenious ambush and one of the most solid defeats of white settlement in Queensland. Join authors Ray Kerkhove and Frank Uhr as they share their research and stories of writing their latest book, The Battle of One Tree Hill. Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Ray to sign. &nbsp;To reserve your place, <a href="https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/the-battle-of-one-tree-hill-with-ray-kerkhove-mitchelton-library-tickets-88440741639" target="_blank">visit Eventbrite</a> or phone the library.
