“Preface: Tasmanians should be a mountain-minded people, for into their small country Nature has crowded many ranges with majestic peaks.  Tasmania is an isle of mountains, of lakes and forests and streams; and noble coastal scenery.  With truth, it has been claimed that nowhere else in the world does so much wild beauty exist in such a small area – 26, 215 square miles.  Tasmania also is rich in historical interest, and beautiful old buildings – homesteads and churches, with all the charm of Georgian architecture.  My wanderings in the Isle of Mountains have given me a store of golden memories which I would share with others – the readers of this book.”
