Description

Excerpt from In the Land of Pearl and Gold: A Pioneer's Wanderings in the Backblocks and Pearling Grounds of Australia and New Guinea The experiences related in this book are fragmentary and do not necessarily follow consecutively. They could not be made to do so without a considerable amount of uninteresting explanation, as the scenes depicted in "In Search of Eldorado" are spread over the same period and chiefly in the same countries. These sketches, therefore, are only meant to be but little pictures that stand out in relief in my memory. They are complete in themselves, but in most cases supplement those contained in my previous travel volume. A wanderer gathers many impressions. In swiftly changing scenes these possibly may be coloured somewhat, as the abruptness of the change does not allow time for his mind to become disassociated from what he may just previously have experienced. Things therefore often appear to him to be incongruous when they are not really so. He is always adaptable, however, and soon falls into line with his new environment.
