Abstract:

"John and Charles Enys: Castle Hill Runholders (1864-1891) records the story of two Cornish brothers who ran the Castle Hill sheep run for more than 25 years in the late 19th century. Extracts from letters by both brothers and paintings by Charles that they sent to their family at Enys in Cornwell give a fascinating insight into a lost way of life. This book records the story of these neglected pioneers who painted and wrote about their adventures. The paintings by Charles Enys now mainly in the National Library of Australia are matched by photographs taken John O'Malley of today's Castle Hill. Historic photographs complement the paintings (some of which Charles painted using photographs). Other John O'Malley photographs feature the stunning scenery of Castle Hill"--Front jacket flap.
