    We of the Never Never ePUB ¶ the Never PDF/EPUB never epub, never kindle, We of free, the Never free, of the Never mobile, We of the Never Never PDFIt's an Australian classic Jeannie Gunn recounts her 15 month stint in a remote cattle property in the Northern Territory during 1902 1903 She has a whimsical manner and her names for the people she meets is a highlight The Sanguine Scot The Dandy Mine Host the Quiet Stockman It's a harsh life with much pride in the achievements of the settlers and some terrible descriptions of the treatment of Aboriginals and the acceptable racism that existed It's dated by it does form an important historical document
