University of Queensland Press, Brisbane - ISBN:0702226513, 1997. Softcover, 9" x 6. Book in VERY GOOD condition. Map (route of 'Royal Tar', 1893) at front, 93 b&w photographs, 10 line drawings in text, 4 maps, epilogue, Notes, and Index. In the 1890s a brave band of ordinary Australians sailed out through Sydney Heads, to found a socialist Utopia in South America. Over 500 settlers created a "New Australia" in the Paraguayan jungle. Their hopes soon collapsed in turmoil; many returned home, others stayed with their families becoming part of their adopted country. Anne Whitehead's unique narrative maps her own journeys to Paraguay over the past two decades tracing the desendants; she relates their stories - of childhood, politican oppression, smuggling and brigandage, obsession and high adventure. This book won the 1998 NSW Premier's History Award (and thoroughly deserved it, too!)
