"Yenohan's Legacy is a fascinating mix of adventure and history and follows a young woman whose life changes over the course of a weekend as she helps restore a hut in the High Country. Haunted by ghosts of previous occupants, Fran is drawn to their stories and seeks the truth - and also finds love in the process."
- Anne Brown, Rosetta Books, Maleny
Lake Claire (or Russell Tarn), mentioned in an article on Wragge's Observatory, is located between Mounts Townsend and Alice Rawson on the main range.
It is claimed to be the highest lake in Australia. More a swamp no doubt to the 10 year drought in the early 2000's

Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction.
And a brazen theft involving a very large historic steam engine proves the point.
The daring theft earlier this year of the historic steam engine from the Kosciuszko National Park had a happy ending with its return a couple of months later.
But police want to track down the thief or theives and bring them to account for their crime.
To remove such a large piece of machinery weighing an estimated two tonnes would have taken planning and special equipment.
Cooma detective senior constable Stephen Hopkin said the steam engine was stolen from the site of the old Kelly's Providence Mill, which is near Alpine Creek, in the Kosciuszko National Park, close to the Snowy Mountains Highway, about 20km west of Adaminaby.
