    From the 1830s on, Australia 'rode on the sheep's back', earning wealth by selling wool to countries around the world. These were the days of squatters with sheep stations the size of Scotland, lone shepherds, half-starved and half-crazy, bullockies, horse teamsters and cameleers carting goods across the outback, clipper-ship captains racing to overseas wool auctions, Cobb & Co coaches carrying mail and passengers to every corner of Australia.This third book in John Nicholson's important series portrays a new trading economy. Australia still depended on the hard labour of people and animals, and the windpower that sent sailing ships across the world.The Transport, Trade and Travel in Australia series: Songlines and Stone Axes(pre-1788)Cedar, Seals and Whaling Ships(1788-1830s)Wool, Wagons and Clipper Ships(1830s-1880s)Steam, Steel and Speed(1850s-1920s)A Hundred Years of Petrol Power(1900-2000)
