AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A personal account of life as an orchardist in Queensland.

Notes

  • Dedication: To my wife and great-hearted comrade Margaret Dinning
  • Epigraph: Man is born free; and everywhere he is in chains. Rousseau: 'The Social Contract'

    But though there is every year such a shifting of the husbandmen, to prevent any man being forced against his will to follow that hard course of life too long, yet many among them take such a plesure in it that they desire leave to continue in it for many years. Sir Thomas More: 'Utopia'.

  • Author's note: These sketches first appeared in the Brisbane Courier, whose Editor is thanked for leave to republish them here.
