Vagabond Days on the Queensland Frontier by Michael Cannon

Always searching for new adventures, the popular 19th-century writer known as “The Vagabond’ (real name John Stanley James) decided in 1877 to travel through the pioneering colony of Queensland. His frank reports, gathered here in book form for the first time, give a fascinating on-the-ground picture of life in a rough and challenging but rapidly developing part of Australia. Today’s Queenslanders and visitors will here be reminded of those heroic and not-so-heroic people who seized and ‘civilised’ the land just a few generations ago.
