Summary

"From the outside, Griffith may be perceived in many different ways--as a regional centre built on irrigation, as a hub of Italian culture in the west NSW, as a mecca for wine aficionados, as the site of a 1970s drug scandal. From the inside, however, there are many more (and richer) stories to tell, and there is a deeper understanding and appreciation of the value of places within and around the city. In this book, local people tell their own stories of Griffith's progress, from the mayhem days of Bagtown, to the thriving city today."--P. 1.
