AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The title of the story, "Cronulla," it may be explained, is based, not upon the picturesque watering resort of that name, but upon a western cattle station and its comfortable homestead, looking out upon a great sweep of cattle-yards, and beyond them leagues of silver-grey mulga, and out upon the horizon a faint cloud of dust that gradually resolves itself into a great mob of cattle. Such is the picture that one is introduced to In the opening chapter, with a governess, who has been engaged to give the children of the station-owner the soft influence of a good woman, as the central figure in it. It is this woman who has come into the life of the station round whom the fascinating story revolves.'
