Flynn of the inland by Ion L Idriess( Book )

75 editions published between 1900 and 2001 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the early days of settlement, men, women and children have battled the harshness of outback Australia to survive, and in many cases to prosper. Medical assistance was often thousand of miles away, children wer e raised without the benefit of education, and people could go for months, even years in total isolation. The Australian Inland Mission, founded and led by the indomitable John Flynn, was the first organization to recognize the unique needs of outback Australians. Here we are given an account of Flynn's struggles and achievements as he sought to bring safety and communication to outback Australia

Above all, however, he created a mighty cattle empire of more than a hundred stations in outback Australia, equivalent in area to England, Scotland and Wales - fighting droughts, bushfires, floods and plagues of rats and rabbits to do so

The red chief : as told by the last of his tribe by Ion L Idriess( Book )

13 editions published between 1933 and 2003 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It would be hard to find a more satisfying hero than the young warrior Red Kangaroo, who by his mental and physical prowess became a chief of his tribe - the revered and powerful Red Chief of the Gunnedah district. His story is a first rate tale of adventure but it is something more - a true story handed down from generation to generation by its hero's tribe and given by the last survivor, "King" Bungaree, to the white settlers of the district. Haunted by the knowledge of "a good story ... a story from a fast dying race, a whisper from the primitive past", Ion Idriess has called back that vanishing world to vivid and exciting life, while preserving one of the few true histories of the Aboriginal people
