AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The central character, Old H.B., as he was known, is a remarkable lump of a man in whom runs the craving of the pioneer to conquer the stubborn land, and the reader follows his ambitious course as he lays his hands upon a thousand square miles of country which had defied subjugation, and gradually masters it to his will. Crude, and almost savage, he works an unscrupulous way to financial strength, and In the hour of triumph experiences the bitterness of defeat at the hands of a man whom he had at tha outset sent to gaol for a murderous assault which H.B. knew to have been the work of another. Mora savoury side lights are to be found in the pathetic simplicity of Sary who with gratitude takes on from H.B. a selection which is well-nigh hopeless; in the sentiment of the wooing of Donald and Georgina; in the pathos of Sandy's loss of

his beloved Martha, a victim to unattended childbirth; and in the countryside humour of ever-jocular men filled with the true philosophy of bush life.'

Works about this Work

Writing from the Contact Zone : Fiction by Early Queensland Women Belinda McKay , 2004 single work criticism
— Appears in: Hecate , vol. 30 no. 2 2004; (p. 53-70) Hibiscus and Ti-Tree : Women in Queensland 2009; (p. 30-45)
This paper examines 'some of the ways in which white women novelists also contributed powerfully to shaping the literary imaginative landscape through which Australian readers came to "know" Indigenous people, and the nature of inter-racial contact, in the period before the publication of writing by Indigenous women began to disrupt the textual terrain' (54). The focus is on the writing of women who grew up in rural Queensland and/or used Queensland as settings. The paper concludes that women writers, though presenting themselves as sympathetic and knowledgeable observers and spokespersons for Indigenous people, were 'active participants in the ongoing colonial projects of subjugating Indigenous people and managing perceptions of that process' (68).
