This book is a novel written by Peter Beveridge based on actual events of that time.
It is thought to have been written in 1862 in the lounge room of the Tyntyndyer Homestead, near Swan Hill
The term “Overlander” generally applies to those pioneering men and women who braved the wilderness to walk their sheep and cattle over long distances to remote areas where new runs and stations were being created.
Livestock was also walked to newly created towns such as Melbourne, Adelaide and others and to the new goldfields that had come into existence following the discovery of gold in the 1850’s
Although place names are not mentioned, it is possible to re-create a pathway of where the Overlander’s of this book traversed.
