Books Info:

The Ghost of Cape York free pdf This enthralling yarn which begins on the remote eastern shores of Queensland's Cape York Peninsula during the dark days of World War 2, when Australia in 1942 was in ever-present danger of being invaded by the advancing Japanese Forces. The pilot of a scouting Japanese Air Force Zero, a Ki-61 Hien, piloted by Flying Officer Takeo Matsumaro, heads south along the East Coast of Cape York in the search for an enemy target, which he duly finds, only to be fired upon by an Australian Coast Watcher, Lieutenant Art Stevens and his companions.Some sixty years later, Tony Stevens, the grandson of the Coast Watcher, who has set out in his four-wheel drive Toyota Landcruiser truck, to explore with a friend the lonely and rugged region of Cape York. It is here that the pair make an unusual and accidental discovery - something that connects Stevens to his grandfather's wartime experiences.For those readers who enjoy a modern yarn coupled with mystery and the supernatural, this story encapsulates the adventures of a pair of young Queenslanders exploring and pig hunting in the remote wilds of the barely explored coastal regions of Queensland's rugged Cape York when they discover something that connects one of the men to an incident that involved his grandfather some sixty years previously during the Second World War.Although the actual story is fictional, it mentions some present day residents of the small town of Lakeland on the base of Cape York. This Australiana book, "The Ghost of Cape York" was originally inspired by a persistent rumor, still unsubstantiated to this day, of the discovery, above the high water mark of a near-intact WW2 Zero fighter plane of the Japanese Imperial Air Force which allegedly had crash-landed on a remote beach on Cape York's east coast. The aircraft had, it is said, been buried by sand and, partially uncovered by wind, revealing its existence to modern day adventurers.
