A Little Bush Maid by Mary Grant Bruce

An Australian childrens’ classic about life on a ranch around the same time of A Little Florida Lady, with a similarly plucky tomboy heroine. Also, like the latter story, expect some racial stereotyping of Asian and Aboriginal characters. This originally ran as a news- paper serial and it shows in the episodic nature of the chapters, such as a vivid trip to the circus sandwiched by talk of a mad killer and an unexpectedly sentimental ending.

“I really enjoyed reading this adventure with my kids. The story is enchant- ing and gives a lovely picture of a time long past.” Amy Talbott

“Very good story. Gives a very interesting look at life in Australia, and a young girl coming of age. Good read.”Linda McCombe

“I grew up on Mary Grant Bruce. I think I was seven when I discovered her books. I wasn’t aware of the sight degree of sexism and racism (it wan subtle) in the stories back then. Telling a girl that she is as good and a boy, meant a a great compliment, is an insult. The same goes for telling a black man that he is as good as a white fella. Well, forgiving that as a symptom of the times that the books were written, MG Bruce’s stories were magic to me as a child and I can see what I enjoyed about them many decades later.” Kindle Customer
