Pastures New, the first of two volumes on the pastoral settlement of Port Phillip, is a general introduction to the foundation and development of the sheep and cattle industries of Victoria. The pioneers of each district are described, the vicissitudes of the pastoralists recorded with sympathy, and recognition is given to the chief breeders of sheep and cattle, and to some of the famous bloodlines, which ensured the industries an honourable place in the history of breeding. The authors provide biographical information on some of the leading pastoralists, and they trace the relations between the Government and the industries over the period 1835 to 1930.


Pastures New was originally published in 1930; its companion volume, Pastoral Pioneers of Port Phillip, which is a comprehensive list of squatters and leaseholders, appeared in 1932.
