Pastoral Australia: Fortunes, Failures and Hard Yakka - A Historical Overview 1788-1967

Author(s): Michael Pearson


The story of the expansion of Australia's pastoral industry, how it drove European settlement and involved Aboriginal people in the new settler society. The rural life that once saw Australia 'ride on the sheep's back' is no longer what defines us, yet it is largely our history as a pastoral nation that is embedded in our self-image as Australians.
