Louis Cox (1878-1975) was a returned soldier of the 16th Bn, who had, after working as a survey hand, started clearing a block near Kojonup. His reminiscences about the land and its people together with his own drawings make this a delightful read. More sombre is the second part where as a soldier, he was captured and imprisoned in Germany in 1917.
