" October 1922, of the author's father, who after 28 years in charge of Lutheran mission at Hermannsburg became desperately ill and set out with his wife and son and some aboriginal friends to seek medical help. Propped in a buggy, the dying man struggled on over boulder-strewn tracts, through river-beds and dust and sand, in burning heat or in darkness. The people of a few cattle-stations along the way, leaving themselves in hard conditions and frightening isolation, did what they could, but every effort failed, and Strehlow died at Horseshoe Bend.". His son remembers this time along with the time at Hermannsburg, the setting up of cattle-stations and more ancient history of the outback Aboriginals.. First Edition. Red Cloth. Reasonable/Fair. 8vo - up to 9 ¾" tall - Octavo. Australiana.
