Publisher Description

An Australian classic.

When Patrick Durack left Ireland for Australia in 1853, he was to found a dynasty of pioneers, and build an empire of cattle-land across the great stretches of Australia. His grand-daughter, Mary Durack, with a profound sense of family history, has rebuilt the saga of the Duracks, a saga that is the story of Australia itself, huge, pioneering, and tremendous in concept.

Customer Reviews

Kym D ,

Mrs

Kings in Grass Castles is a really gripping tale of a family, a community being forged out of emigration to a new land, of undying determination to provide security, and of failure to satisfy the grand dream, but of success in achieving the enduring dream.
It was told with an intensity of connection, yet with a dispassion born of careful research, by a descendent of the main players. I recommend it to all who love delving into Australia's pre-federation past.
