The reminiscences of Tom Petrie concerning early Queensland, first appeared in the “Queeslander” in the form of articles, many of which referred to the Aboriginal People in those days. These articles were then recorded and published by his daughter, Constance Campbell Petrie, in 1904.

This book also provides a brief sketch of the early days of the colony of Queensland from 1837, through the eyes of Tom Petrie. He was considered an authority on the Aboriginal People and in this book there is a wide range of interesting and important information about them, including some vocab words.

A small example of the type of story included:

"Another of these early time squatters or men of "the good old sort," was the late Sir Joshua Peter Bell-one of Queensland's best known men. He arrived in 1846, and was a big, fine-looking man. He was a great friend of the blacks, his nature being such that they always placed the greatest confidence in him. His name and that of Jimbour are strongly linked, and I am indebted to his son, the Hon. J. T. Bell, our Minister for Lands, for the illustration of "Warraba" taken at that station. This black , as a small boy, came to Jimbour with the first or second party of Europeans under the late Mr. Henry Dennis about 1843. He came from the Namoi, in New South Wales, and was an exceptionally fine specimen of an aboriginal. In manner, dignity of bearing, and intelligence, he resembled a superior type of white man. He died in 1891.
