| Book Description: |
Jacob Goode came first to Sydney in the early 1830's but came north after some bad decisions corroded his business. He became one of the colourful characters of the early settlement of Moreton Bay, Queensland.
Becoming an hotelier gave him the opportunity to indulge in his favourite pass times of horse racing and excessive use of alcohol. When things got a bit too hot to handle he sold his hotel, packed his dray, and headed for the mountains to the north-west.
