Description
This elegant abridgement of Godfrey Charles Mundy's three-volume 1852 work provides an absorbing picture of colonial Australia. Dealing with Sydney and the bush alike, Mundy's anecdotal style conveys the obstacles and issues that beset a rapidly growing colony, and his ability to draw a cast of characters—squatters, bullock drivers, publicans, and small settlers, as well as members of the highest ranks of colonial society—offers added pathos to his measured account. Contemplating the implications of convict transportation, the desirability of free immigration, the distribution of crown lands and relations with the indigenous population, Mundy supplies a unique perspective on Australia's heritage.
