Excerpt from Publication 086
The Settlement of George Sanders and his Family
"And they became quite expert in using the weapons, accompanying the native men and boys on their hunting expeditions. They also learned to climb quite high trees, cutting steps with their feet using wadners (sharp pointed sticks), and pulling opossums and parrots out of their holes. It was dangerous work, and I think if father had known the peril, he would not have been so easy about them. This was when the boys were minding the cows."
Membership is open to any person with an ancestor who arrived in South Australia
