“Paving the Way deals with a period of thrilling history.  This work does very much for South Australia what Lorna Doone has achieved for Devonshire.  The life at this time abounded in wild adventure but the book is also a valuable guide to the customs, habits and traditions of the Australian aborigine.  Truth and fiction are woven with considerable ability, and Paving the Way will forever occupy an honoured place in Australian literature.”
