The Whittakers Story: Australian Pioneers and Pastoralists Hardcover – 9 January 2021
Enhance your purchase
At long last, the story of how a pioneering family settled
in Australia has come into print. From Britain in the late
1700s, with travels from India and to the United States
and Mexico, running through in Australia until mid-1914,
and branching out up to the 1960s, Clyde Whittakers
compiled much more than just a family history.
Central to the early narrative is how an Englishwoman of
great character, Martha Louisa Moore, rescued her
orphaned nieces and brought them from Edinburgh to
Sydney. She later started Australia's first school for
young ladies, which she ran in Sydney for twenty years.
This book includes writings from Mary Howitt Walker,
Reg.W.E. Wilmot, Dora Campbell, Harry H. Peck and
There are also three pieces by the famous Australian
author Mary Grant Bruce, one of which is her best work,
'Port After Stormie Seas'. Here you can find the farming
properties, and lots of the characters, on which she based
the 'Billabong' books and so many of her other yarns.
