Australiana

At long last, the story of how a pioneering family settled

in Australia has come into print. From Britain in the late

1700s, with travels from India and to the United States

and Mexico, running through in Australia until mid-1914,

and branching out up to the 1960s, Clyde Whittakers

compiled much more than just a family history.

Central to the early narrative is how an Englishwoman of

great character, Martha Louisa Moore, rescued her

orphaned nieces and brought them from Edinburgh to

Sydney. She later started Australia's first school for

young ladies, which she ran in Sydney for twenty years.

This book includes writings from Mary Howitt Walker,

Reg.W.E. Wilmot, Dora Campbell, Harry H. Peck and

Malcolm Ellis.

There are also three pieces by the famous Australian

author Mary Grant Bruce, one of which is her best work,

'Port After Stormie Seas'. Here you can find the farming

properties, and lots of the characters, on which she based

the 'Billabong' books and so many of her other yarns.
