When in 1893 German immigrant Dr Edward Hoche was appointed medical officer in Birdsville Queensland, there was only one way to get there: he and his family made the six day journey through the December heat by stagecoach and buggy. They had been told to expect a little house made of corrugated iron. Nobody had told them about the typhoid epidemic.
Through original letters and research, Helen Ferber has crafted a vivid account of the Hoche's and their extended family in Australia and Germany.
