This enthralling story portrays the colonial enterprise of two Australian pioneers – Mathew Dillon Cox and that of his wife Catherine in 1872. Compiled with attention to detail by his great grandson James Cox, set in Rockhampton, Queensland and later in the Northern Territory after Palmerston had been surveyed to become Port Darwin, this most northern Australian town grew alongside a tent camp for the building of the famous Overland Telegraph Line, from Port Darwin to Adelaide, South Australia’s greatest engineering and communications achievement.
