Written in 1887 by Walter S.S. Tyrwhitt, it is ... 'mainly an account of the author's personal experiences in Queensland, and he ventures to hope that as it deals with the every-day life of a Colonist in the Bush, it may be useful to those who think of settling in Australia. He has not enjoyed the inestimable, privilege of being "shewn round", but perhaps on that account he has had a better chance of seeing things as they really are, and not in their holiday aspect.
The chapters cover Country, Climate and Agriculture; Sheep and Cattle; Lost in the Bush; Society and Classes of People; Horses and Riding; A Day’s Work; Wild Animals, Sport, &c., and Droving.
This ebook is a the same as the CD version from Archive Digital Books Australasia which is available from Gould Genealogy & other retailers.
