I Believe that this article/stub should be deleted as the book isn't sufficiently famous/noteworthy to have it's own entry. I propose that the text be moved to an article (not yet in existence) on the Author Robert Drewe.
For instance, "The Latham Diaries" don't have their own entry, but the author Mark Latham does. Grumpyyoungman01 14:25, 3 February 2006 (UTC)
Deleted Original research
"People have often questioned the creditability of this autobiography with reasons asking how Drewe can remember images so vividly from when he as young as 6."
Nobody has ever questioned the credibilty of the book, otherwise where is the proof, references etc.. that they have. I am removing this because I think it comes under original research. Grumpyyoungman01 00:18, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
Problem with his supposed autobiography, and his book about C Y O'Connor (The Drowner) is that they are blends of fiction and incorporating historical personages, as a consequence it is not valid to really question the history in such a novel. In a casual aside with him (Drewe) many years ago about his Tasmania/Sydney novel - it is clear that the mix of autobiog with history has been a pervasive theme in most of his work - this makes it problematic to ascertain the bits of history and the bits of fiction. Maybe. User:SatuSuro 13:15, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
It doesn't seem relevant to list every school which is studying this text. It is leading to unnecesary edits which requires article maintenance. Information on how this book is being used in schools is not relevant to the article title "Robert Drewe". It would also be more appropriate to move 'The Shark Net' into a seperate article.
I have commenced a tidy-up of the Bibliography section using cite templates. Capitalization and punctuation follow standard cataloguing rules in AACR2 and RDA, as much as Wikipedia templates allow it. Feel free to continue. Sunwin1960 (talk) 02:12, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
