On the Author "Volatile, but always generous and witty, McCarthy was one of the most forward-looking and perceptive of Australian officials. His own cartooning and painting made him an appreciative collector of Melanesian art, and his capacity for story-telling translated into an engaging prose. He was one of the few officials who made the difficult transition from the adventure of exploratory patrols, to departmental head, to the willing devolution of power." - Australian Dictionary of Biography.
