This book contains Mary Grant Bruce’s first two published stories, which she wrote for Christmas editions of The Leader newspaper in Melbourne when she was a staff journalist there:
These early tales demonstrate an understanding of the challenges of the Australian outback and introduce many of the concerns she would later develop in her highly successful fiction for children.
Mary Grant Bruce’s two original works in Mary Grant Bruce: The Early Tales are under copyright owned by the Mary Grant Bruce Family Trust.
