This book is the story of Millpost through time. 

David wrote this book to mark 100 years since his grandfather Frank Hyles purchased Millpost. The book follows millenia of Ngunawal/Ngambri history through to first white settlement, the battlers who tried to eke out a living here in the 19th century and all the way through to the present day.

Local historian David McDonald has written some generous and thoughtful words about the book:


"Millpost: back in time is a delightful, authoritative, and important book. It realises the aphorism, attributed to American historian Thomas J Noel, that 'History is not something that happened long ago and far away. History happens to all of us all the time. Local history brings history home...'. Millpost is about family, community and place. It engages with both the European heritage of our area, and with deep time. And it demonstrates how one family of our era has skilfully blended caring for country and conducting a successful family farming business. Highly recommended."
