Author(s): F. H. Broomhall


An account of the building of the longest unbroken line of fence in the world between 1901 and 1907. It stretched 1139 miles from the south coast to the north-west of Western Australia, and was intended to prevent rabbits from invading the state. Includes photographs and a map. The author was a boundary rider on the fence and has published a local history and a military history.

1991, First edition. A good, serviceable copy of this very scarce title. Some old moisture staining but a still very readable copy.
