959 book of history by Dame Mary Durack (1913–1994). The book is considered a classic of Australian literature.

The book was notable for its portrayal of the role of women and families in the pastoral industry and collaboration and respect between the pastoralists and local Aborigines. pp. 445 illusts #0218
