Hello all bundyites. I'm looking for your help in writing a book about the bundy and so i need your invaluable contributions. My own family came from the bundy and have often told me stories about it. I feel that these stories have to be put into print for prosperity and before it's too late and there's no one left who remembers the bundy. So i had the idea of collating all the first hand stories and compiling then into a book. With the help of all you orginal bundyites, i'm sure we can do it. I promise to include the names of all contributors whose recollections and stories are included. Working chapter titles are set-out below to get us started. Who knows, once published it may be serialised in a newspaper. The story of the bundy will be there for us all to share with our famlies. It seems to me that the bundy draws comparsion with the mythical 'brigadoon', in that it suddenly appeared and then disappeared jut a quickly a few short years later. Let's bring it out of the ashes - i'm sure it'll be a good read.

All the best for now
