Summary Edited and annotated by his great-granddaughter Mary Louise Simpson, Stuckey's memoirs chart his failures and successes first hand. He explains his role in the Burke and Wills tragedy; the trials of opening up new grazing lands in the inhospitable north; and expeditions to British India (now Pakistan) to buy camels for use in the outback. A fascinating account of early colonial life.
