Some Came Early Some Came Late is a book by Nancy Phelan and published by Macmillan in 1970. Having done most of her travelling in other parts of the world, Nancy Phelan set out to see something of her own country and of the people who live there, and to discover what Australia is really like today. In the Barossa Valley of South Australia, she reached beyond the tourist veneer of the vineyards and wineries and came to know and understand the well-established German families, still clinging to their Lutheran way of life. She explored the ghost towns of the once famous copper mining region on the Yorke Peninsula worked by Cornish settlers, talked with representatives of the newer type of Greek olive growers, and with Dutch almond growers. On Phillip Island, Victoria, she glimpsed something of the settled life of its fishing and agricultural inhabitants, before visiting the new chicken-farming community of Estonians at Thirlmere, N.S.W. Then another contrast in the nearby Camden district, where she describes the old-established community at Cobbitsy, descendants of early colonists In Queensland she stayed on a Peak Downs cattle station, visited Exmoor Downs, the setting of Rachel Henning's LETTERS made friends on the Atherton Tableland, travelled in strange buses, slept in odd country pubs, and was entertained by Sicilan sugar farmers north of Cairns. First Edition. Condition: Good - Very small bookshop stickers affixed to front pastedown and rectangular piece of paper cut to free endpaper. Dust jacket: Good - protected in clear plastic sleeve. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
