- Even though the case study seems narrow, establishing yeoman farmers was a global endeavour in the nineteenth century, giving this book a broader dimension that just Australia. - Taps into previously unused/little used archival content, like the printed valuable records and oral histories. - The material is timely because small farms are facing new threats (rising price of water in mainland Australia).
