Extractions: Australian (1878- 1958) In her own lifetime, Mary Grant Bruce who was born at Sale, in the state of Victoria, Australia on 24 May 1878, was regarded as Australia's most popular author. She dominated Australian children's literature for the first half of this century. Her Irish born father, Eyre Lewis Bruce, was a pioneer surveyor in Gippsland, part of Victoria. In 1870 he had married Mary Whittakers, the daughter of William Whittakers. Mary as a little girl spent much time at Heyfield, a Gippsland cattle station (ranch) managed by one of her uncles, Charles Whittakers. No doubt her childhood experience of life on both properties provided the general background for the early "Billabong" books, at least. As a child, Mary Grant Bruce was devoted to her father and to her older brother Patrick, who died tragically in 1885, as a result of a shooting accident. Mary was sent to stay with her grandparents at Fern Hill on an extended visit. It was here that she began to write poems and stories at the age of the seven. She received a firm grounding in language from her mother, but her formal schooling began at the age of ten, in a private school run by Miss Beausire who encouraged her to enter the examination of the Melbourne Shakespeare Society, she won First price on 1895, 1897 and 1898.

Company Info JOHN MARSDEN presents Australian Children's Classics John Marsden is Australia's no 1 bestselling writer for teenagers and a well-respected authority on literature for young people. He has selected four out-of-print Australian classics to be republished and introduced to a new generation of readers. As a child growing up in rural Australia, books were an essential part of my life. I read avidly, to enjoy the vicarious adventures that I experienced in their pages, to escape the boredom of daily life, but perhaps even more importantly, as I read I unconsciously soaked up an enormous amount of information about the world, our society, and our culture.

Chapter XVIII A Celebration of Women Writers. Chapter XVIII by Mary Grant Bruce(18781958). From A Little Bush Maid by Mary Grant Bruce. London http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/bruce/maid/maid-XVIII.html
Extractions: From: A Little Bush Maid CHAPTER XVIII EVENING They were all sitting on the lawn in the twilight. Norah had dispensed afternoon tea with laborious energy, ably seconded by Dick, who carried cups and cake, and made himself generally useful. Then they had talked until the sun slipped over the edge of the plain. There was so much to talk of in those days. They had been talking over plans for the future, plans which Mr. Linton's masterfulness modified very considerably. "I'm not going to live on you, Davy." "Well, I won't for a while," the Hermit said-and immediately received a kiss on the top of his head. "Thank you, Norah," he said meekly. "Don't mention it," Norah answered politely. "Oh, I'm so glad you're going to stay with us, Mr. Hermit!" Norah had flatly declined to call her friend anything but the name she had given him in the bush. As for the Hermit, he was perfectly content with anything Norah did and had no idea of objecting. "You heard, didn't you, Norah, that they'd found your friend, the Winfield murderer?" Mr. Linton asked. "Ah, don't, Daddy," Norah said, flushing. "I wasn't suspicious. I was a duffer."

Extractions: From: A Little Bush Maid CHAPTER XVI FIGHTING DEATH "You!" Mr. Linton said. He had put Norah gently into the rough chair, and turned to Dick Stephenson, who was standing by his father, his lips twitching. They gripped hands silently. "You can recognise him?" "I don't know," the other said hastily. "Can't tell until Anderson comes. But I fancy it's typhoid. You brought the things? Ah!" His eyes brightened as they fell on the leather medicine-case Mrs. Brown had sent, and in a moment he was unstrapping it with quick, nervous fingers.. The Hermit stirred, and gasped for water. He drank readily enough from the glass Mr. Linton held to his lips, while his son supported him with strong young arms. There was not much they could do. "Anderson should be here before long," Mr. Linton said. "What time did Billy leave?" "A little after twelve." "What did he ride?" "A big black." "That's right," Mr. Linton nodded. "Anderson would motor out to Billabong, I expect, and Mrs. Brown would have the fresh horses ready. They should not be very long, with ordinary luck. Billy left about twelve, did he? By Jove, Norah must have made great time! It was after half-past ten when she left me." "She and the pony looked as if they'd done enough."
