The Count, Giovanni Francisco De Bonanate, a Perth Character.
 Ed. by Peter J Bridge. ISBN 978-0-85905-743-1, (New, 2018), A4, 24pp, illustrated, 80 grams, $22.00*

The jury is still out as to whether the Count was merely a demented Diego, a con artist, or a lost relic of Buonaparte's empire.

Bonanate was a travelling journalist who sold cheap cigars, played the ponies, and was a fixture in the Magistrate's courts for his love affairs with booze.

His line was, he claimed, that of Napoleon's retinue and his son's destiny to be King of France.

He left Australia in 1930 to 'help' Mussolini. He certainly helped us by leaving.

Two of his many children returned to Australia much later to live and die. They would have had a story.

Chasing the Dragon's Tale by Bob Shepard. 


The Pilbarra Society.

This organisation, based at Hesperian, has been set up to concentrate on Pilbara history, its places, people, and potential. The iron ore industry has dominated the area for many decades but the history of the area since the 1860s is little known.

The characters and incidents are as interesting as that of the better known Kimberley and goldfields. Station, mine and town histories are needed and the society hopes to bring together those who can contribute to the subject.
