AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In 1902 Jeannie Gunn, a Melbourne schoolteacher, went with her new husband to live on the remote Elsey cattle station near the Roper River in the Northern Territory. Though she spent little more than a year there, her experiences in the outback and her contact with the local Aborigines impressed her deeply, and on her return to Melbourne she set down her recollections in two books, We of the Never Never and The Little Black Princess.

These books have become classics of Australian literature, beloved by generations. They are presented her in a special condensed edition for the enjoyment of today's readers. (Source: Bookworm website)
