Parson on the Track : Bush Brothers in the Australian Outback by Ivan Southall hb ec $5This Is The True Story Of A Courageous Missionary Venture Into The Australian Outback. The heartbreak and sacrificial struggle of mission and outreach to the Australian Outback from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century by the Brotherhood of the Good Shepherd is poignantly told in this book. Each biographical vignette focuses on the years that select individuals - gallant, heroic, flawed by different aspects of their own humanity - brought to the stark western plains beyond Bathurst and Dubbo.

Well, the poor king got so fed up with this he locked his daughter in a round tower where an old monastery had once stood. ... In the end the king was forced to proclaim that any man who could open the door would have his daughter's hand in marriage and become heir to the throne. Such was the king's wealth and the reputation of his daughter's beauty that just about every man in the entire kingdom wanted to try. It wasn't long before the keyhole was damaged by people shoving things into it that didn't really belong there". Ages 12+
