That Land of Exiles: Scots in Australia

 
9780114934255: That Land of Exiles: Scots in Australia

Australia - land of opportunity for many, despair for others. The book explores Scotlan's historic link with Australia and the Scots men and women who forged them. The enlightened policies of New South Wales's governor, Laclan Macquarie, helped to consolidate the young colony; and another Scots governor, Sir Thomas Brisbane, is commemorated in the city that bears his name. Dame Nellie Melba was of Scots parentage and Waltzing Matilda Australia's unofficial national anthem was written by the son of another Scot Andrew Patterson. The book, written by experts with Australian links, describes the activities of Scots in exploration, farming, education, the arts and commerce. It ends with a look at the furure of the Scottish-Australian relationship, and explores the lucky country from a new and often surprising perspective.
