This book gives an overview of the history of northern Queensland.

Published posthumously in 1903, this book by Edward Palmer gives an overview of the history of northern Queensland. He came to the colony in 1857, two years before separation and remained there till his death in 1899.

'The author of this book, the late Edward Palmer, was himself one of that brave band of pioneer squatters who in the early sixties swept across North Queensland with their flocks and herds, settling, as if by magic, great tracts of hitherto unoccupied country, and thereby opening several new ports on the east coast and on the shores of the Gulf of Carpentaria, to the commerce of the world. In writing of these stirring times in the history of Queensland, Mr. Palmer has dealt with a subject for which he was peculiarly qualified as an active participant therein.'

The book ranges over a number of topics including navigators, inland exploration, explorers in North Queensland, pioneering work in Queensland, spread of pastoral occupation, rise of the northern towns, mineral wealth, incidents of the early days, men of the north, aboriginals of North Queensland and physical features.
