This is the story of spoilt city children who are sent to stay with country cousins. After an initial period of animosity, the visitors learn to accept the ways of the bush, and the creed of honour and duty held by their cousins.
The story gives an interesting snapshot of life in a small country town around 1900, with its local schools and entertainments, for the father is a country doctor, and not “on the land”. Picnics, riding and outdoor activities figure prominently.
