Chips Mackellar
Sivarai is a collection of short stories set in Papua New Guinea prior to Independence in 1975 and for some years afterwards. The author was a patrol officer working with the Australian administration. It tells of patrol officers, planters, pirates, sturdy patrol horses, an agile little donkey and a loveable pig called Cabbage. It is a collection of rollicking yarns, part adventure, part intrigue and part nostalgia.
