Recollections of Geoffrey Hamlyn

by Henry Kingsley

The history of a family and their friends who leave Devon and settle on farms in New South Wales, where a villain, formerly transported as a convict, turns up as head of a fiendish gang of bushrangers. The incidents are thrilling, the scenes of happy family life and the portraits of healthy, sterling character have a genuine fascination, and the glorious scenery of Gippsland is depicted with a vivid pen very different from Charles Kingsley's elaborate word-painting.
