Review of Harry Heathcote of Gangoil: A Tale of Australian Bush Life by Anthony Trollope; with an Introduction by Marcus Muir
Anthony Trollope wrote two novels set wholly or partly in Australia. Harry Heathcote of Gangoil first appeared as the Christmas number of the Graphic in 1873 and was issued in book form the following year. Subtitled 'A Tale of Australian Bush Life', it was based on Trollope's observations of sheep-station life during his first visit to Australia in 1871-72. John Caldigate, of which only a few chapters, albeit highly important ones, are set in Australia, was written in 1877, two years after Troll ope's second and much shorter visit, and was serialized in Blackwood's in 1878-79, appearing in book form in 1879.
