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.
This story, taken from diaries, letters, and legal documents, is the story of Michael Durack, Mary Durack's father, and his vigorous generation.
An excellent reader who put real passion into the story. Shame there is noy a third book .
