AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Queensland historically has been linked to distinctly male, nineteenth-century motifs and myths -frontierism, the lone bushman, the landholder, and the maverick outsider. But from colonial times these have been challenged by women writers who have offered insightful alternative commentaries on Queensland life and landscape. They have often 'disrupted' these male myths by digging deeper - through the cutaneous surface - and finding their underlying secrets or 'truths'.' (Author's introduction p. 111)
