Description - Mount Abundance; Or, the Experiences of a Pioneer Squatter in Australia Thirty Years Ago (Dodo Press) by Allan MacPherson

The Mount Abundance run was taken up in 1847 by Allan MacPherson (1818-1891), a young squatter from New South Wales. MacPherson had come to Queensland seeking new pastures, and had followed the route of Sir Thomas Mitchell into the Mount Abundance area. Following constant conflicts with local Aboriginies, MacPherson decided Mount Abundance was a dangerous place and in late 1849, he withdrew his sheep from Mount Abundance, leaving it as a cattle station, and returned to England. In 1856 MacPherson briefly visited Australia at which time he disposed of his pastoral interests, including the sale of Mount Abundance to Stephen Spencer.
