Wool Before the Wind
By Heather B. Ronald

A History of the Ronald family and the Australian Mercantile Land and Finance Company.

Aided by a number of early diaries and letters. Heather Ronald in Wool Before the Wind has again given us an intimate view of a part of Australia's history. This book follows the fortunes of the Ronald family, and in particular the role played by some of them in the foundation and development of the Australian Mercantile Land and Finance Company. Illustrated with many photographs from family collections, and by maps and plans which identify locations, this book also includes a comprehensive Family Tree. Stories of the early Scottish Highlands carry through to the present generation in Britain and Australia, and the eventual demise of A M L & F is dealt with in some detail.
