'Baroola is no ordinary place, at least as far as the McKillops are concerned. Of course, if you took any family from Sydney and put them on a farm at Baroola they'd find it a bit strange at first, and the McKillops were no exception. But who would have thought a pig could get sunburn? Still, when Dad decided to buy the farm and move the whole family to Baroola at least everyone was willing to learn. Not that it was always easy. But it was exciting, what with the kids at school, and the fair, and the animals. Not to mention the flood. It will be a long time before they forget that in Baroola. in the end they did learn. Not everything of course, but enough to know that they belonged in Baroola.'
