Based on the people and incidents of the early years of the Rockhampton district, this collection of the columns of newspaper correspondent J.G Pattison, writing under the nom de plume 'Battler', is as engaging and vibrant a read today as it was when it was first published in 1939.
Be they violent murderers, white settlers and explorers, black troppers and trackers, Mr Booze, horse races, kangaroo hunts, musics halls and circuses, ladies' fashions, downtown Saturday nights, Fitzroy sailors, townsmen and merchants, ladies of the night, ne'er-do-well's or gold prospectors, James Grant Pattison recorded them all.
