This book is affectionately dedicated to my loyal and supportive and dedicated wife and number one fellow researcher and fieldworker, Heather.
This book is also affectionately dedicated to my late father W.F. (Bill) Gilroy (1904-1996) An experienced bushman and gold miner.
Although the big gold strike always eluded him, he unearthed the Tarana Skull no.1 (Solo Man), a 300,000 year old mineralised fossil, the discovery of which is pertinent to the book "Giants From the Dreamtime, the Yowie in Myth and Reality", for it demonstrates that the first humans evolved in Australia.
This book is also dedicated to:
The open minded, free thinking visionary, who does not know the meaning of the word "impossible".
The field-working, rugged adventurer who never stops at the foothills, and always wants to see what lies beyond the next mountain.
The dedicated individualist who has the courage and fortitude to defend his or her ideas, regardless of overwhelming opposition.
All those who against all reason, dare to dig deeper than anyone before them in their search for the truth
