AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The travelling Padre reflects upon the remarkable capacity camels have to endure extremely harsh desert conditions. He also recalls an old stockman who stoically endured a crippling illness rather than go to town and seek medical attention. The mysogynistic man's reluctance was because he would have to submit to the ministrations of a woman.
