Long-lost manuscript becomes a Queensland First after 145 years. Faced with losing his centuries old family estate to debt, Tom Hurstbourne headed to colonial Australia to make his fortune. He had no idea that the Shrewsbury lawyer he left in charge of his affairs would snatch this chance to exact the ultimate revenge on Tom, the last of the Hurstbourne dynasty… Brisbane Editors, Gloria Grant & Gerard Benjamin, transcribed the manuscript and wrote its introduction and contextual notes. “A very valuable new addition to Australian literature…” Elizabeth Webby Emeritus Professor of Australian Literature, University of Sydney “Tom Hurstbourne is highly readable. It is a lively novel… intriguing and entertaining…” Patrick Buckridge, Professor, School of Humanities, Griffith University, Brisbane “Among the most graphic descriptions are the landscape, weather, bushfires, plants and birds…” Dr Rod Fisher, Brisbane historian “I think it will be a top seller…” Lawrie Kavanagh, author and columnist
