In the bowels of a Sydney pub, the publican poses with his hand in chains: a reminder of the time when the underground store was a convict cell. A family, thrown out of home during the Great Depression, set up house in a cave. Women sort mushrooms in a disused railway tunnel in 1950s; a jazz band rehearses beneath the Royal George Hotel. As people go about their busy lives, beneath their feet members of the Cave Clan clamber through shadowy stormwater tunnels. Written by historian Michael McKernan, Underground Australia is illustrated with photographs from the National Library of Australia. With images by some of the country’s best-known photographers, including Jeff Carter, Wolfgang Sievers and Frank Hurley, this book will take you on a journey to an amazing underground world.

Underground in the Underdown

Braxton came up, pulled his pistol and shot the boy in the head in front of everyone, but the twitching didn't stop right away. Some of the guards were cheering on the dog, but you could tell that a few were disgusted by the cruelty.

A tide rolls north, the Solution in its wake. This is the mission of a battalion of snakes, young draftees, really just boys. There are stoic snakes and sadistic snakes, all at the mercy of the man who never gets lost. The North has young warriors too, a collection of war orphans known as hill dogs. This band of back country boys survive the wilderness with a feisty young lady. They engage in their own form of resistance, acts of sabotage that force the snakes to guard every worthless bridge. They convince the snakes that even the forests have turned against them and ferocious beasts are lurking everywhere. It is these invisible young shepherds who lurk underground, ready to guide a refugee to safety. They bear incredible stories of narrow escapes. Together they learn the horrific secret hiding on the hill, and they launch a plan of rescue and resistance. When snakes and hill dogs tangle, which will see their master's lies unravel? There is only one Solution.

Air, land, . . . and sewer? Exiled for centuries to a primitive planet, the people of Aerros have learned to live without animals or higher technology but using their genetically engineered plants, cultures, and Wing cousins to survive instead. Over time, they improved the Wings, from flying idiots to a productive serving class. But there are some places that feathered appendages just wont fit. The humans who handle these less-than-pleasant tasks are provided extra assistance and special privileges to make up for such work. Pete is just a boy, but hes quick and agile and can get into all of those tight spaces to help his father maintain the sewers, but he could do without the older apprentices hazing. Left in the dark, filthy tunnels by his fathers apprentice, Pete is rescued by Jared, a unique descendant of both human and Wing. This chance intervention sets Pete, Jared, and their friends on a path that will eventually bring the true problem of the settlement to light.
