Product description

Product Description

When Patrick Durack left Western Ireland for Australia in 1853, he was to found a pioneering dynasty and build a cattle empire across the great stretches of Australia. With a profound sense of family history, his grand-daughter, Mary Durack has reconstructed the Durack saga-- a story of intrepid men and ground-breaking adventure. 'The best saga of pastoral Australia ever published... hard to describe without superlatives... in a hundred years the book will still be a classic.' Meanjin Dame Mary Durack Miller DBE OBE was born to the heritage of a pioneering family. Long recognised as one of Australia's great literary figures, she wrote 15 books, short stories, poetry, plays and film scripts. At the time of her death in 1994 she was working with producer Paul Barron on the screen adaptation of KINGS IN GRASS CASTLES.

What a wonderful story, I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire book and can only marvel at the physical endurance of those man and women. Holding my copy of Kings in Grass Castles was difficult, so once onto my Kindle, reading was a breeze, even with the light out.

Incredible history of northern Australian settlement - from their hard battles in outback Queensland and through to the Kimberley. A really informative and enjoyable read.

I couldn't put it down. A great history of pioneering top half of Australia. Tragic outcomes for a family seemingly so moral, honest and hard working.

Fascinating story of our early settlers but I got bogged down with so much detail. A long story.
