'Mrs Muir's main intention has been to choose stories which are still stirring and interesting for a young reader today, and this she has certainly done.  Her selection ranges from the humour of Norman Lindsay and the inimitable Ethel Turner to the excitement and awareness of such writers as Olaf Ruhen, Henry Lamond, Ivan Southall and Patricia Wrightson.  Here are bushrangers, aborigines, drovers, and all the great Australian originals, graphically described by writers with a real feeling for Australian life and landscape.
This anthology has many delights to offer readers new to the riches of Australian children's literature, who will also appreciate Marcie Muir's Introduction and comments on the chosen pieces.'
