Mary Grant Bruce (1878-1958) was an Australian children’s author and journalist who began writing at the age of six. While spending most of her childhood on her grandfather’s cattle station in Victoria, she developed a love of horses and the Bush which is reflected in her books. Bruce is most famous for her Billabong series following the adventures of the Linton family on Billabong Station in Victoria and in England and Ireland during WWI.
In Billabong Riders, the final book of the Billabong series, the story revolves around a cattle drive in Queensland with electrical storms and cranky bulls stampeding the herd, cattle thieves, and a happy ending with all set to rights. As with most of Bruce’s 39 stories, common themes prevail: the Australian Bush values of independence, hard physical labour by all, mateship, ANZAC spirit, and Bush hospitality.
We offer 15 other books from the Billabong series, the Peter series, and other titles, with more Mary Grant Bruce books to come. Come join us and proof a few pages to help us bring more public domain titles like these to Canada. Information about volunteering is available on our companion site Distributed Proofreaders Canada.
