This book documents the history of the use of horses and bullocks by Europeans for the land transport of people and goods in Australia, beginning with the arrival of the first horses and cattle with the First Fleet. The book describes the way in which bullocks, horses and camels were used, and the wide range of vehicles which they hauled. The breeding of animals with particular characteristics, particularly horses, is covered.
