red end-papers; b/w. frontis. photo. of the author; In 1902, Jeannie Gunn, a Melbourne schoolteacher, went with her new husband to live on the remote Elsey cattle station near the Roper River in the Northern Territory. Though she spend little more than a year there, her experiences in the outback and her contact with the local Aborigines impressed her deeply, and on her return to Melbourne she set down her recollections in two books, We of the Never-Never and The Little Black Princess. These books have become classics of Australian literature, beloved by generations. Mrs. Gunn took a genuine interest in the Aborigines, however it is obvious she believed, as did most Europeans of the day, that other races should emulate the ways of the white man. That said, she had sympathy & true affection for the Aborigines at a time when these attitudes were sadly lacking in other Europeans. Deluxe Edition. Size: 4to - over 9�" - 12" tall. 270 pages.
