Cover title. Born into the family of an Irish schoolteacher turned publican at the turn of the century, young Colin Bingham reached beyond the predictability of Maxwelton, with its cloudless horizon and circling hawks, to the thriving city of Brisbane.

There he laid the foundations of a foreign correspondent's career and, ultimately, the editorship of the Sydney Morning Herald. The story of his Queensland days is recounted with sensitivity and gentle humour.
