“Lyndon Rose has published three novels and a non-fiction work on Aboriginal, Polynesian and Melanesian cultures, People in the Sun, and has been president of the Fellowship of Writers, Canberra. As a fifth generation Australian she has been long acquainted with the story of Richard Siddins through a variety of his descendants and her relations.  It was clear, after carrying out a little research, that Siddins stood in his own right as an early merchant sea captain and she has set down his story as a tribute to his contribution to the trade out of Port Jackson in the early days of the Colony.”
