Description:
Mile End, SA: Wakefield Press. 2014. Octavo Size [approx 15.5 x 22.8cm]. Very Goodcondition. Illustrated with sepia-toned photographs and coloured maps. Appendices include a Family Tree. Robust, professional packaging and tracking provided for all parcels. 101 pages. Edited and annotated by his great-granddaughter Mary Louise Simpson, Stuckey's memoirs chart his failures and successes first hand. He explains his role in the Burke and Wills tragedy; the trials of opening up new grazing lands in the inhospitable north; and expeditions to British India (now Pakistan) to buy camels for use in the outback. However, no event would have such an impact - nor be so remembered - as the moment in 1864 when he shot and killed an Aboriginal man named Pompey. His reasons for this action, and the events that followed it, form the focal point of a fascinating account of early colonial life. . 1st Edition. Softcover.
