“First published in 1893, this is a novel about Australian pioneer life in the 1800s. It follows the life of Roland Grantley, an English youth, who, after being shipwrecked in 1840 near Kingston SE, South Australia and escaping the subsequent massacre, settled at the whaling station at The Bluff. He went on to become a pioneering squatter, developing sheep stations in the Tatiara and the upper Darling River region.”
