The desert column : leaves from the diary of an Australian trooper in Gallipoli, Sinai, and Palestine during World War One by Ion L Idriess( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One hundred years after the charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade at Beersheba in October 1917...The Desert Column is based on the diaries that he kept through out the war. Published in 1932, it is one of Idriess' earliest works. Harry Chauvel noted in the foreword that it was the only book of the campaign that to his knowledge was "viewed entirely from the private soldier's point of view"...Idriess served as a sniper with the 5th Australian Light Horse. Enlisting in 1914, he began his diary "as we crowded the decks off Gallipoli" and he continued writing until returning to Australia...The diaries cover his experience of some of the war's major events from life in the trenches at Gallipoli to the battles at Romani and Beersheba. One of Idriess' strengths as a writer is his ability to place the reader at the scene of the action...The diaries reveal a keenness of observation and a descriptive and pacey style that Idriess would develop further in The Desert Column

Pastures new; an account of the pastoral occupation of Port Phillip by Ralph V Billis( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An account of the pastoral occupation of Port Phillip, written by R.V. Billis and Alfred S. Kenyon (a noted historian) in 1930. This book is written as a history and account of pasturing and the merino sheep and wool industry in Port Phillip from its first permanent settling in 1835 to the gold rush of the 1850's. It includes information on laws, land sales, squatters, the first land boom, pastoral companies, station hands, bush ranging, exports, stock diseases, gold, meat trade, pioneer women, depressions and much more. This publication also includes extracts from diaries and notes of early pioneers as well as from letters which provide an excellent primary source for historians and genealogists. As Billis and Kenyon say; these 'not only carry us in fancy to the early scenes and life in the bush - for they breathe the very spirit of the times - but they are of historic value' which is very true of the book itself
