Henry George Lamond

Henry George Lamond (13 June 188512 July 1969) was an Australian farmer and writer, notable for his novels about the land, people and animals of outback Queensland.

Lamond was born at Carl Creek in Queensland's Gulf country and educated at Brisbane Grammar School and the Queensland Agricultural College. From 1902 to 1927 he worked at jobs ranging from jackeroo to horse-breaker to manager on various properties in western Queensland. From 1927 to 1937 he leased the Molle Islands in the Whitsunday Group near Proserpine, Queensland, farmed on South Molle Island and established a mail service to the mainland. In 1937 he moved to a farm at Lindum, Brisbane. He had been writing short stores and magazine articles since the 1920s, but from the 1930s he was increasingly supporting himself and his family through his writing. His work was popular not only in Australia but also in Britain and the USA.Australian Dictionary of Biography
