AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Undulating plains and the delicate tracery of bush trees silhouetted against the skyline, the droving of sheep in the open country and the shearing in the sheds, the humor so characteristic of the Australian bushman, and the tragedy that is ever in the offing, are vividly portrayed in The Squatter's Daughter. A desperate fight against the encroaching, consuming bush fire, and the luxury of a gorgeous swimming pool, followed by an hilarious dance at "Waratah," present a striking contrast typical of the extremes of life outback.' (p. 32)
