Tom & Jack
Written by Geraldine Byrne
Tom & Jack is one of the rare success stories of the early days of the Kimberley cattle industry. A veteran drover and cattleman, Tom Kilfoyle partnered his kinsmen the Duracks in exploring and overlanding to the Kimberleys. His son Jack was an enterprising and mischievous man. He was the defendant in charges ranging from cattle duffing to breach of promise of marriage, and is remembered for his enlightened attitudes toward land management and Aboriginal stockmen. The author, a granddaughter of one of the original overlanders, has meticulously researched this fascinating history. A great real-life adventure and enthralling family saga.
