Description
Information
In the bestselling 'Black Kettle and Full Moon', master storyteller Geoffrey Blainey takes us on another absorbing journey - a guided tour of a vanished Australia.

Covering the years from the first gold rush to World War 1, Blainey paints a fascinating picture of how our forebears lived - in the outback, in towns and cities, at sea and on land. He looks at all aspects of daily life, from billycans to brass bands, from ice-making to etiquette, from pipes to pubs. The engaging text is further brought alive by an evocative selection of contemporary illustrations by artists such as Julian Ashton.

This is Geoffrey Blainey doing what he does best bringing to life for the modern reader the sighs and sounds and smells of another time.
