Pace’s huge fortune passed into the hands of his murderers. He had married some years earlier a young lady from Brussels who had brought him a substantial dot. Undoubtedly the money was useful to him in his career, as his family was not rich, though on the other hand he was entitled to call himself M. le Baron if he chose. There were no children of the marriage, and his wife died after two years-the result of a fall downstairs. Among the property which she bequeathed to him was a house on the Avenue Louise in Brussels.

Between 1910 and 1970 the Australian government took 100,000 Aboriginal children away from their homes. They were taken away from their families because the government did not believe in the future of the Aborigines. These children, known as the Stolen Generation, were often under five years of age. They thought it would be better to bring them to white families. Many methods were used to separate Aboriginal babies and children from their families. Children were simply taken away by government officials and later told that they were orphans. Mothers often were given documents to sign.

The Fence stays away from towns. Where it passes near a town, it has actually become a tourist attraction visited on bus tours. It marks the traditional dividing line between cattle and sheep. Inside, where the dingoes are legally classified as vermin, they are shot, poisoned and trapped. Cousin to the coyote and the jackal, descended from the Asian wolf, Cam's lupus dingo is an introduced species of wild dog. Skeletal remains indicate that the dingo was introduced to Australia more than 3,500 years ago probably with Asian seafarers who landed on the north coast.

Journalist William Olson fought in New Guinea in World War 11 as the Australian and American armies resisted the advancing Japanese Imperial army. For more than three years from 1942 to 1945 he wrote 329 letters to his sweetheart, then wife, Ruth. The letters describe the war with his professional reporter’s eye. All 329 letters are preserved in the Australian War Memorial as the largest intact collection from WW11. The Years Away is an edited version, telling the story of a man, like so many others, changed forever by war. A sharp reminder from his writing is the waste of war and how many of the best men and women of his generation were lost. There are few live heroes in any war so those who return are survivors trying to pick up their peacetime lives the best way they can. Because they suppress the horrors, many rarely discuss what they saw and experienced. William Olson survived the War and went on to become a distinguished journalist and writer.
