From the Foreword:
The history of the Barossa is unique.  The combination of free and adventurous British entrepreneurs with determined German settlers fleeing persecution, proved to be invincible.  When the noted South Australian philanthropist, George Fife Angas and his advisers invited the people of Prussia to take up land, he brought together a spirit of enterprise and discipline to parallel few other migration movements.
This book records not only the history of the Barossa Valley but also makes a significant contribution to the written history of South Australia."
