'This book is about those men of compassion, the Legatees of South Australia, Northern Territory and Broken Hill. It is the history of an important part of the Australian Legacy movement, spanning over 40 years of humane endeavour by a comparative few for many. Yet it is more than that. It is a sociological history which shows how a significant section of the community - the tens of thousands of war-bereft widows and children - has been able to live, work and play in a manner which would not have been possible without the existence of Legacy. It is the story of a loud cry and an imperishable covenant.'
