“Cattlemen of the High Plains record the early development of Victoria’s alpine regions by the pioneer cattlemen.  Some came from the Monaro in the 1830s to reach the ‘Plains of Omeo’; others advanced up the Murray and its tributaries to discover the Bogong High Plains in the 1850s; and the Gippslanders moved their herds to alpine pastures in the 1860s.  The cattlemen, the snow-plain pastures, the mountain scene and the bush huts are described and illustrated in this volume compiled by Harry Stephenson, whose interest in the ‘high places’ has taken him to the remotest corners of the regions he describes.  It is a unique volume, recapturing and recording an era whose history is fast becoming lost.”
