Jack Sullivan's new book titled Dr Henry Lindeman and Cawarra, Gresford (part 1) is now available. It provides a detailed insight into the life and times of Henry Lindeman in his early years before coming to Australia and his long and productive life in the colony. The book is essential reading for those interested in the history of wine growing in Australia.
Not only is Dr Lindeman a pioneer in the wine industry. He was also one of the first "wine doctors" - doctors who established vineyards and made wine to use as a medicine for patients. The book is 399 pages and contains numerous photos and maps, as well as an index and bibliography.
The price of the book is $45, available on Sundays from Paterson Courthouse Museum, or by mail order from Paterson Historical Society ($15 postage). It is also available from McDonalds Bookstore in Maitland and the local history section of the Newcastle Regional Library in Laman Street, Newcastle.
