An Australian Monarch$27.50 AUD

The story of a remarkable episode in the history of Australia. Leonard Casley and his family who owned and operated a wheat farm in Western Australia, were faced with financial ruin under the centrally controlled wheat marketing rules. He studied the rules, he met the administrators of the rules, and found the only survival option, within the rules, was to secede from Australia. He did this, and the resulting adventure is a mixture of high stress and hilarity; of success against all odds; of great personal courage and family support. The Australian spirit of bucking an oppressive book of rules could not be better described than in the story of the Hutt River Province.
