“The Premier of Queensland has written the first chapter of this book. In it he makes a broad survey of the State today – its production and prosperity and its place in the Australian Commonwealth. The ensuing chapters, prepared by a panel of expert researchers and editors, tell the story of the State’s beginning, natural wealth and development and future prospects.
This story of the State is simply and directly told and holds value and interest for everybody – students will find it geared to study courses, travellers and newcomers will receive an immediate understanding of the country, those who have spent their lives here will gain fresh understanding of the land in which they live. This is, too, an ideal gift to send to friends abroad.”
