AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The story will at once capture the sympathy of all readers for the little heroine, Sallle, who is discovered leading a life of loneliness and drudgery in a city boarding-house. The scene is changed suddenly, however, when Biddy steps in and carries off the little girl to a wonderful fairy tale life in the heart of Australia's loveliest hills and forests. Here Bailie finds a new, undreamed-of world, and a red-headed whirlwind of a tom boy friend, who shows her all the secrets and joys of the bush and finally leads her into adventure that almost ends in tragedy.'
