'Peter Monteath’s publication of an English-language version of Gerstäcker’s Australien makes a worthwhile contribution to early Australian history. Many authors wrote of their travels in Australia; for example, George Theodore Blakers’ account of life in Australia from 1849-64; Anthony Trollope’s travels in the early 1870s in Australia and New Zealand, and Adolph Würfel, influenced by Trollope, (K.M. Reynolds, Romanticism, Culture and Migrationthe diary of Adolf Würfel) covering the period from 1876-1877, and Mark Twain, The Wayward Tourist (1895). Also there were settlers, who wrote of their first-hand experiences in Australia.' (Introduction)
