When Queensland became its own colony in December 1859, John Dunmore Lang (1799-1878), a Scottish Presbyterian minister, was an advocate on the emigration possibilities that it offered, particularly in the cotton-growing and sugar industries.
He not only lectured extensively on this topic, but also produced this book, ‘Queensland, Australia’ to let people know about the colony and what it had to offer.
‘Queensland, Australia’ covers topics such as geographical features, rivers, the natural and artificial productions of the land, various settlements, climate, government, Aborigines and much more.
Ideal for those researching Queensland’s history, as it provides an insight into Queensland as it was in 1861.
