The Burning Mists of Time
   
This book brings together disparate information to tell the fascinating story of the establishment of Katoomba and the present day Scenic World. It traces the people, the geology and the visions that led to the creation of an amazing infrastructure for mining of oil shale and coal in the Jamison and Megalong Valleys. Infrastructure that today forms the basis of one of Australia's major tourist attractions. The book covers the period from aboriginal pre-history, through the industrial era of the 1980s to the modern day.
