KIRKUS REVIEW

A personal and friendly introduction to the Anzacs and their country by a newspaper woman who married an Australian correspondent. Hearty, good-humored, lively, her book reflects her own personality. She touches but lightly on matters social, economic, political; rather is it a miscellany of anecdotes, incidents, things seen, profiles, all embodying the country and the people. The cities and sections:- Sydney, Port Arthur, Brisbane, Adelaide, the lovely Christchurch; on to New Zealand; up to Auckland. The people, Independent, unreserved, democratic, irreverent, more American than English in their characteristics; the soldiers, the intelligentzia; the Maoris, and their miracle man and lovely chieftainess; language; animals; gold fever; and the AEE.
