The first part of the book is overly dedicated to the union movement in Australia, and it isn't until the latter half of the book that the story of those people in Paraguay gets interesting, at least to someone who's been to the places they settled.

I first read this book when I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay. I worked with a man who was a direct descendant of one of the Australian immigrants to Paraguay. The first part of the book is overly dedicated to the union movement in Australia, and it isn't until the latter half of the book that the story of those people in Paraguay gets interesting, at least to someone who's been to the places they settled. I've given the book four stars because the author did a tremendous amount of research and puts it together coherently and in organized fashion. The photographs are worth the price of the book.
