'The colourful history of Australia, from discovery and early settlement, through pioneering and consolidation, to the expansion and rapid change of the present day, is told by a writer distinguished in the fields of both history and creative literature. Marjorie Barnard has based her book soundly on extensive research and careful analysis of the many complex factors in the nation's growth, and her freshness of approach, individuality of outlook, and imaginative perception have enabled her produce a history that is stimulating and absorbing as well as informative.'
