The history of the people of the Snowy Mountains has largely been an oral one.
Over the last twenty years, individuals such as Mathew Higgins and Klaus Hueneke have collected their stories, often on audio tape, copies of which now reside in the National Library of Australia, with the authors and with KHA. Many of these have been translated into print, both in magazines and books.
Many relevant books can be found at the Tabletop Press website. This company is the publisher of books relating to the high country by Klaus Hueneke and others.
