Description Free Sample Download
Written in 1866 from a 'desire to supply the fullest and most recent information respecting a colony which is likely soon to become one of the most important under the British crown', this book contains about 500 pages of early South Australian colonial history.

The book was written only 30 years after proclamation by Anthony Forster, who had been a member of the legislative council in Adelaide during its early days. It therefore provides very interesting and direct insight into the nature of society in South Australia at this time and the way it was governed.

Many areas of the early South Australian colony are included, ranging from British colonialism and South Australian colonisation to geography and natural history, including South Australian government, exploration, trade, agriculture, pastoral interest, religion and education, aborigines and immigration.

This account was one of the first comprehensive and enlightening records of the colony of South Australia. As a result it provides a great primary source of early South Australia for both family and local historians.
