Real history is the story of people such as Jack Shelford and his brother Arthur who left their homes in England to find a better and peaceful life far away from the clamour and ugliness of war. They had a sense of adventure and refused to let this vast and sometimes cruel land overwhelm them. They endured unbelievable hardships in order to achieve success first building their homestead and then turning it into a productive farm.
