The film is an epic of the pioneering families of New England and south eastern Queensland, in part a celebration by Chauvel of his own family.
From my viewpoint, it is an interesting film because it provides a lovely entry point that links together many different features of New England and Australian life. In this context, I have just finished a longish post, Sons of Mathew 2 - Charles Chauvel (1897-1959), looking at the life of Charles Chauvel, one of Australia's premier film makers.
From time to time I will add further posts. However, I don't want to spoil the fun by saying what they might be. Let the story unfold with time.
