Jane Sullivan

Little People
This is a novel based on the true-life story of Tom Thumb and his troupe of 'little people'. It gives an interesting flavour of 1870s Australia as it struggled between the desire to be connected to the mainstream cultural currents of the era and the harsh frontier realities of the colony from the unusual perspective of the little people.
