Good Luck, Dear Girl: A turn of the century romance
Duncan Puckle emigrated from England to New Zealand in 1884. He was eighteen years old. He spent four years learning about sheep farming before buying his own farm in Pahiatua on the North Island. An outspoken and outgoing young man he was prominent in the political, social and sporting life of Pahiatua. He married Gertrude Moore, a friend of Henry Lawson, before he and Gertrude migrated to Tasmania and then Somerville in Victoria. The lives of Duncan and Gertrude illustrate the social history of New Zealand and Australia from the 1880s to the first half of the 20th century in Victoria.
