A NEW novel from Katharine Susannah Prichard is always an event in the literary world. Few writers have so consistently influenced writing in this country; few have ventured into so much virgin territory or covered such a wide range of subject matter. It is fifty-two years since her first novel The Pioneers won an Empirewide competition. But it was not until 1926, with her book Working Bullocks, that notice was served, in no uncertain manner, that a new writer of unusual strength and insight had appeared on the Australian literary scene.
