    One thought on “Our Sandhill Country”

    1. Very interesting, well-written, first-hand account of life on a cattle station in southern Queensland around the beginning of the 20th century. The author grew up amongst Aborigines who worked on the station and, being a woman, was shown many of the things they knew about local flora and fauna. There were still wild blacks around in those days and she is able to discuss some of the issues related to the survival of these first Australians in lands that were being taken over by Europeans.
