The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

When little Nancy and her father came from America to take over the sheep station that Billee's father managed, many complications arose. Complications made more involved by Billee's angry determination to do what seemed almost impossible—makes these unwelcome strangers not like Australia and so go home where Billee thought they belonged.

But Billee's careful plans collapsed one by one as he showed Nancy the wonders of fascinating Australia. Nancy's eager interest and enthusiasm, as well as their exciting adventures together, made Billee change his mind at last—when matters were arranged to the eminent satisfaction of all.

Here is a delightful story—and an exciting picture of a country in so many ways like our own; yet different enough, with its strange animals and vegetation, its tropical heat in the north and its snow and ice in the south, to completely captivate the imagination—for there is a kinship between ourselves and this wonderful land "down under."
