AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This poem tells the story of how an injured horseman has to travel a long distance to see a doctor, and the length of time he remains in agony before being treated. The last verse laments that in 1915, sickness or injury was terrible in the bush because of the distance to get medical attention. The next poem, 'Modern Ways', talks of the advent of the Flying Doctor Service and how it has immeasurably improved life in the outback.
