The history of early Australian colonial history is fascinating. Fascinating because it began as an ugly British experiment and resulted in a unique and beautiful democratic country. The lucky country! My country.
A bookish observation: There’s always a sense of warmth when reflecting on a book just read and enjoyed. That’s how I feel today about Jane Gleeson-White’s well written book “Australian Classics”. I found the book a pleasure to read. Each chapter was dedicated to a particular book and was a comfortable length explaining the what, how and why, of the chosen “Australian Classic” followed by the author’s story, some dazzling, others sad.
A bookish observation: The Unlikely Voyage of Jack de Crow” 1st Edition, by AJ Mackinnon, practically leapt off the shelf into my hands. It was during one of my regular visits to the local library. There it was, in the travel genre section.
