Up Rode the Squatter is a history of the early settlement of western Queensland. It is a story of the dispossession of land and violence as squatters pushed relentlessly into traditionally owned lands.
Cattle duffers roamed the country, sometimes herding stolen cattle hundreds of kilometres. Gangs such as the Kenniff Gang rivalled the Kelly Gang in ruthlessness. Holthouse brings to life other characters - Eulo Queen, Billy the Boy and Big Harry Bedford.
Illustrated with a brief index.
