In this book, K A Austin not only tells the story of the birth, rise, and fall of Cobb and Co, but also describes in fascinating detail what the coaching age was like. He deals with the coaches, horses, and drivers, the roads and changing stations, passengers, bushrangers, and accidents, the economics of the industry, and a vital role of the post office. He also explores the influence of Cobb and Co on Australian folklore, literature, and art.
Through over 190 selected illustrations, Austin brings to life this vital segment of Australian social history. He creates a unique and unforgettable picture of an agent that has passed.
