A 514-page collection of short stories by a writer closely associated with Australia, having arrived there in 1830 at the age of four. He did not begin writing until he was forty, at which point he could draw on a wide range of experience. His fiction, of which ROBBERY UNDER ARMS (1888) was the most successful title, was praised for its faithful depiction of Australian life and landscapes. The present volume "contains a description of his literary beginnings and methods, and contains his two early sketches, 'A Kangaroo Shoot' and 'Shearing in Riverina' ." - Miller and Macartney, Australian Literature (1956), p. 67. Hubin (1994), p. 84.
