'Robert Bruce Plowman was born at Melbourne in 1886 and educated at State schools and at Scotch College there. He was from 1912 to 1917 patrol padre in Central Australia for the Australian Inland Mission, and his experiences in that region are recorded in pleasing prose in the trilogy which began with The Man from Oodnadatta. Larapinta is a novel of a city girl's experience of Central Australian station life on a property given the name that provides the title of the book.'
