Description

Excerpt from Mrs. Tregaskiss, Vol. 1 of 3: A Novel of Anglo-Australian Life Coming in from the Bush - strange, lumber ing, top-heavy masses, drawn by teams of fifteen, twenty, and even twenty-four bullocks, the beasts with heads bent under the yoke, flanks heaving, tongues lolling, the streaming saliva making a Viscous trail on the dusty road. Their drivers walked beside them, dust-caked, sunburned, knotty-looking fellows, their faces beaded with perspiration, arms and chests bare, and with greasy hats and limp pugarees. They goaded on the tired animals, which turned and butted and gave weary bellows as their drivers urged them with mighty lashings of the thick-thonged whips and much blasphemous shouting.
