Mr Robert Gouger, South Australia's first colonial secretary, was one of the great, and most influential founders of the state. He is regarded as having taken up Wakefield's principles of the new colonisation and "working it into practical shape".

This book is a history of the founding of South Australia from the point of view of Robert Gouger. It is written as a selective compilation of Gougers personal diary and correspondence (often with those who were influential in the founding of the state) in parallel with a biographical account of Gougers life.

This CD-book contains a fascinating account of South Australia's founding years, in a compilation of valuable primary source material.
