AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this unadorned account of his family he [Norman Macnamara] presents a picture of pioneers, of strong-minded, strong-bodied men and women who had to fight the land from which they were trying to coax a living...Their story is a testament to the courage and endurance on which much of Australia has been built' (Back cover).


  • In the Introduction, Norman Macnamara writes: 'Every word of it is true to the best of my memory and knowledge but I do not claim that dates are exact or that all events occurred in exactly their right order. It starts when Clancy left New South Wales for Queensland with his wife and family in 1888.'
