Summary "Bishop Sir James Patrick O'Collins was 'larger than life' and it is fitting that his many and varied contributions be recognised in this book. .... I commend his book to all those interested in the history of Australia and of the Australian Church. ... Having left school at an early age, James O'Collins' lack of a scholastic background almost excluded him from the priesthood. Yet at the age of thirty-seven, ordained just seven years and still a curate, he was made bishop of the vast, sparsely populated Diocese of Geraldton. Stories of his life in the west are legend. ....
