Product Description

Jean Bull, a prominent Queensland rural journalist, weaves a picture of station life in southwest Queensland in the early 20th century from the perspective of a child growing up in the outback.

This is a narrative composed of poignant literary sketches of life on Tiranna station interspersed with interesting anecdotes and socio-historical details. This book records an important epoch of post-World War I station history.

The story is written in an eloquent, easy-to-read style where the author portrays the trials and tribulations of station life with a cast of colourful characters who once frequented outback Queensland.

The story is a tribute to the pioneering fortitude and achievements of her father George Ernest Bull and her mother Marjorie Bee Finch Bull (nee Brodie) in the establishment of Tiranna and the raising of their two daughters.
