Tom and Jack: A Frontier Story
Publisher:Fremantle Arts Centre Press
Tom & Jack tells the story of the Kilfoyles, who played a major part in the original overland cattle drive from Queensland to the mouth of the Ord River on the border between the Northern Territory and Western Australia, and who were instrumental in establishing the cattle industry in that part of the Australia. The book is a wonderfully intimate account of the day-to-day problems and hardships faced by these early pioneers as they struggled to make a living in the most sparsely settled region of the continent. The author, a granddaughter of one of the original overlanders, has meticulously researched this fascinating history.
