"The central interest of this story is found in the many adventures of an English lad who seeks employment as a cowboy on a cattle ranch. His experiences during a "roundup" present in picturesque form the toilsome, exciting, adventurous life of a cowboy; while the perils of a frontier settlement are vividly set forth in an Indian raid, accompanied by pillage, capture, and recapture. The story is packed full of breezy adventure."-- Publisher description

He spends nearly 30 years among the Aborigines of Northern and N-W Australia. The author, born in Switzerland in 1844, has been called the modern 'Munchausen' and this work has been compared to Defoe's Robinson Crusoe
