Historical Sketch of Queensland

Author(s): William Henry Traill

History | Queensland

Queensland's troubles with the natives and her involvement with imported, cheep, labour makes a story that seems to parallel the deep south of the United States.
The story seems un-Australian in it's detail, but only because most Australians are unaware of the facts.
The Historical Sketch of Queensland has been adapted, as a small-scale facimale, from the Picturesque Atlas of Australasia, which was originally published in 1886 to celebrate those first hundred years of the founding of Australia.
In the present for the Historical Sketch of Queensland provides something more than a mere outline of the development of Queensland up to 1886. The writing style takes us back to that era which few people living today can accurately recall, and the idiom makes us wonder how we were then. The scores of wonderful etchings reinforce the mood, and to see how things have changed.
Other titles in the present series are: Historical Sketch of New South Wales and Historical Sketch of Victoria.
