The Wieambilla ShootingsJohn Kerr
Two survivors, three lost lives. The true story of a long-prepared ambush by religiously motivated conspiracy theorists.
Grappling with a dangerous conspiratorial worldview, Gareth, Nathaniel and Stacey Train carry out one of Australia’s most horrific ambush attacks. Disillusion, paranoia, isolation collides violently with distrust of government and the outside world in Central Queensland.
John Kerr has taken time and care to intimately research the lives of Nathan, Gareth and Stacey Train to help readers make some sense of what happened that day and why.
With an incoherent mash-up of Apocalyptic Christianity, the Sovereign Citizen Movement, doomsday preppers mentality, anti-vax conspiracy theories and a withdrawal from normal society, The Wieambilla Shootings chronicles the trio’s descent.
