I have just finished reading this book.

http://www.barossaherald.com.au/story/4970621/murder-tale-resurfaces/

It interests me as I have camped many times in the locality and have known about the Towitta Murder of a 13 yr old girl from there in 1902.

Recommend this book as it enlightens one to the treatment of women in the early days.

The truth as told by the book has changed my perception of the unsolved crime.

Some more reading, and there is plenty on the net.

Well, I've searched several major online book (as those with paper pages and print) and come up 0

Namely
--world wide used books www.abebooks.com
--web source www.bookfinder.com
--Canadian major book chain https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/
--currently major online books, etc supplier* www.amazon.com

* This place is setting up an additional plant, to have 50,000 jobs.  11 Canadian cities have submitted applications.  No idea how many US cities likewise.

--google Australia, for book to buy, auth and title....  0 results


Findings.  There is another Richard Dutschke in this world.  He writes on archival and old bibliographic stuff.



Undecided UndecidedThe Question.  A good bibliographic source maybe a state or national library. 

I could not find an online book retailer.  & I thought the google Australia site excessive divisions of sources, though it does say 'books to read'.  That used to be a fairly straight forward site.  T'ain't so today.

Undecided
