“The word “Jubilee” has come to connote happiness and it is particularly appropriate when applied to the fortunes of those who today carry on the work commenced by those who envisaged the possibility of creating happy and prosperous settlements where, in earlier years, mere handfuls of settlers grazed their flocks of sheep.  The pioneers of the irrigation settlements have passed on, with few exceptions, but the record of their courage is an example of Australia to-day.  The authoress has avoided any attempt to produce a severely historical record and has aimed at providing for the people of Australia and overseas a simple account of the conditions under which the foundations of the Murray River Settlements were laid and carrying the reader through the early trials and struggles, until fifty years later the names of Mildura and Renmark are known throughout the Empire.”
