'Cattle Kings' ye call us, then we are Kings in grass castles that may be blown away upon a puff of wind... - Patrick Durack, 1878.

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.

    " Fascinating history and a real family saga, which showed the strength and endurance beyond all hardships. I relished the experiences of what my forebears would have also survived and prospered in. "

    " An interesting historical account of the Durack family and their pioneering efforts across Australia in the late 1800s. I didn't expect to feel so much a part of their history - which is somehow also mine, and I couldn't help crying at the end. "
