When Patrick Durack left Western Ireland for Australia in 1853, he was to found a pioneering dynasty and build a cattle empire across the great stretches of Australia. With a profound sense of family history, his grand-daughter, Mary Durack has reconstructed the Durack saga-- a story of intrepid men and ground-breaking adventure. 'The best saga of pastoral Australia ever published... hard to describe without superlatives... in a hundred years the book will still be a classic.' Meanjin Dame Mary Durack Miller DBE OBE was born to the heritage of a pioneering family. Long recognised as one of Australia's great literary figures, she wrote 15 books, short stories, poetry, plays and film scripts. At the time of her death in 1994 she was working with producer Paul Barron on the screen adaptation of KINGS IN GRASS CASTLES.
