Carolyn Landon is an oral historian, and has a Masters degree in biography and life writing from Monash University.

In 1937, Daryl Tonkin and his older brother Harry bought 550 acres of Gippsland farmland and regrowth forest on the flat to the west of Jindivick. A Kurnai man, Stuart Hood (Pop) and his family came to work for the Tonkin brothers and because there was plenty of work, good water and firewood other members of the Kurnai family came and set up camp on Jacksons Track too. For over two decades Daryl and the Aboriginal community lived in relative peace.

The book was received earlier than I expected. The quality was as good as described. All in all a very satisfying buying experience.

Having been raised at the gateway to the region of Gippsland that Tonkin describes in this account, I can relate to much of the geography and botany that he so evocatively describes. Regrettably, much the same fate awaited my childhood playground and it is painfully disorientating to return to what now are suburbs and planted gardens. This is a superb memoir, and, from my reading experience, a unique one within the southern state of Victoria. There is, indeed, very little in the way of eloquent love stories between anglo saxons and First Australians. The parallels, historically, roughly parallel interacial marriages in the United States. In Australia they were actually illegal for quite some time. Tonkin endures the wrath of his family and his society. But he is already a committed bushman, pretty much an extinct species today. We had an old guy living a kilometer from our fenceline abutting the forest,in much the same way as Tonkin describes. I was fascinated by his contentment, and used to sneak through the underscrub to watch him sucking his pipe and sharpening his axe. He made a few bob by cutting kindling and sharpening saws for neighbours. I loved this book and warmly recommend it.

If Australian history, Aboriginal invasion history or postcolonial interests concern you, then Jackson's track is an enlightening and insightful read.

Autobiographical and plainly written, "Jackson's Track" is the story of a love affair, not just between a white man and aboriginal woman, but between and man and the land. In 1936 Harry and Daryl - the Tonkin brothers - set out into the Australian bush, as part of the expanded logging industry. And so begins a life linked to the land and the people that inhabit it.

Part social commentary, part family history, "Jackson's Track" is overall a love story. It is through the developing relationship between Daryl - a simple bush man (as he continually asserts) - and Euphie that we come to experience racism, the stolen generation and the cultural dislocation of a people whose way of life was erased by fences, paddocks and highways.

Wonderfully evocative in it's authenticity, the simple language is used to great effect. Daryl's love for the bush flows through every word about it, just as it flowed through every action: he was always happiest when he was in 'his' bush.

A beautifully authentic and engaging story of love against the norms of society; a society in which the "White Australia Policy" was still influential. For anyone interested in Australian history, it is worthwhile taking a trip down "Jackson's Track."
