Sequel to "Isis Downs" Station the 1910s
This book tells the history of this iconic western Queensland Station - from the first lease in 1866 to the last shearing in 2004.
Supplies were carried hundreds of miles by horse teams - preserved milk and potatoes, dried peas, raisins, sugar, flour, ordered in large quantities, sometimes by the ton.
First-hand experiences of jackeroos, shearers, overseers, and managers, showcase the lifestyles and hardships endured by the early settlers.
A must read for those interested in the development of the pastoral and social history of Queensland.
