'Henry Kingsley's exciting, colourful and often humorous account of squatter life in early Australia has all the ingredients of the popular and successful novel of Victorian times.
Here is the triumph of good over evil; the pioneering spirit of adventurous Englishmen, far from the villages of their birth, overcoming the bushfires and other natural perils of a hostile land; the open-air life - in which kangaroo hunts and breakneck rides through the bush are intermingled with fights with treacherous 'blackfellows' or desperate bushrangers.'
