With incisive and highly original readings of popular late 19th and early 20th-century settler adventure romances and popular ethnography, this book unmasks a deep-seated anxiety about the stability of concepts of whiteness and femininity in colonial Australia. It considers in detail Miles Franklin s My Brilliant Career, Catherine Martin s An Australian Girl, the adventure novels An Australian Bush Track by J.D. Hennessey and Rosa Campbell Praed s Fugitive Anne: A Romance of the Unexplored Bush, and the ethnographic works of Katharine Langloh Parker.

By taking as a starting point the perceived fictitiousness of white settler subjects, the book suggests that our current knowledge of British colonialism needs to be radically rethought.
