Queensland classic edition, originally published by Watson Ferguson & Company in 1904.
These stories, first appeared in The Queenslander in the form of articles, many of which referred to Aboriginal People. These articles were then recorded and published by his daughter, Constance Campbell Petrie, in 1904.
This book also provides a brief sketch of the early days of the colony of Queensland from 1837, through the eyes of Tom Petrie. He was considered an authority on Aboriginal people and in this book there is a wide range of interesting and important information about them, including some vocabulary words.
