"In the following pages the writer's chief aim has been to delineate present day bush life in an auriferous district of Australia. / The bush-ranging period of our history is now of the past; comforts and conveniences of European civilisation have superseded damper and billy-can tear; the Australian settler in the sun-chequered, shadowy bush, lives much as do his fellow subjects in any part of the world; influenced, of course, by the different circumstances of his newer surroundings." - from the Preface.
