Our knowledge and ideas about the world are shaped by writers – poets, novelists, playwrights and journalists. The 1800s were a time of turbulence and change in the Australian colonies with droughts, strikes, bushrangers and long periods of mass unemployment. The freethinking writers of the time were often called radical but they were the voice for change in this new country – and their influence is still evident today.


Bernadette Kelly has written a number of fiction and non-fiction titles for both the trade and educational market. She lives in country Victoria and is a keen horsewoman.


A recommended book for Teachers and students alike for the study of Australian authors and their work, or just for an interesting read.


This is an interesting and valuable reference book and teaching tool for children, aimed at the 8+ years’ age group.
