    "'Cattle Kings' ye call us, then we are Kings in grass castles that may be blown away upon a puff of wind..." - Patrick Durack, 1878. When Patrick Durack left Ireland for Australia in 1853, he was to found a dynasty of pioneers, and build an empire of cattle-land across the great stretches of Australia. His grand-daughter, Mary Durack, with a profound sense of family history, has rebuilt the saga of the Duracks, a saga that is the story of Australia itself, huge, pioneering, and tremendous in concept.

    The Australian classic Kings in Grass Castles was the saga of the first generation of the pioneering Durack family, beginning their story from 1853. But the second generation of the Durack men were not only hardy pioneers, used to droving cattle thousands of miles through the grandeur of north-west Australia - they were also educated, travelled men, at home in the worlds of commerce and politics.
