The best examples of colonial Australian romance are collected in this anthology, from writers such as Ada Cambridge, Rosa Praed, Francis Adams, Henry Lawson, and many others. These fascinating stories show the many different outcomes of romance: happiness and marriage in some cases, loneliness and regret in others. They show colonial women challenged by a new life in a new place. But they show men being put to the test, too, and sometimes failing in the quest for love in a brave new world.
