This book is a fascinating compilation of the memoirs of Harry H. Peck, a stockman who was associated with Newmarket in Victoria for almost 70 years. It is written as a history of stock marketing, especially of Newmarket from the point of view of Harry Peck, and is compiled from his own memories and experiences along with the help of others who had records of the early days of Newmarket.

The book covers stock market history from the 1840s to the 1940s, and includes chapters on the history of Newmarket, famous cattlemen, Gippsland pioneers, Westernport, the Great Kyogle land deal, Goulburn, Albury, Murray, Kiewa and Mitta Runs, Holbrook and many others.

Harry Peck's memoirs offer amazing insight into the lives of stockmen of all kinds in Australia's history as well as providing a detailed history of stocks in Victoria in this period, and thus is a fantastic resource for local and family historians.
