Compiled over a number of years, the 'Pastoral Pioneers of South Australia' is a compilation of articles that was first produced by 'The Adelaide Stock and Station Journal', as as series of biographical sketches starting in 1923.
This two volume set contains approximately 300 biographies of South Australia's Pastoral Pioneers and Old Colonists. The Foreword claims that '... this is the most comprehensive collection of biographies ever produced in relation to the pastoral industry of any state'.
A photograph accompanies each entry, as well as extensive biographical details. Those falling into the 'Old Colonists' category had arrived in the state prior December 28, 1846 (which was the 10th Anniversary of the Province). A large percentage of the entries in these volumes contain previously unpublished information (other that the Stock Journal), including information that has been supplied by descendants and old friends of those listed, which includes details and stories that would have otherwise gone unknown.
Full of history and biographies this is a valuable record of the early pioneers and pastoralists who helped make South Australia what it is today.
