Our Little Australian Cousin
By: Mary F. Nixon-Roulet (?-1930)
Another delightful look back at how people and children lived in the late 1800s in this part of the British Empire. This book introduces us to Fergus and Jean Hume and their family who are sailing to Australia from Scotland to make it their new home. The immigrants must pass through Melbourne then Sydney by rail before the father goes on to set up his new homestead. Many strange sights await these Scottish children and their parents.
