As everyone knows, this series was one of the three series we had put up for a poll. We now can finally begin this series and breathe life into it.
Lucy-May of the Southern Rainbow is about the experiences of a family colonizing South Australia. Unlike most other parts of Australia back then, this area was not being used as a colony for criminals (back then, the British Empire used Australia to hold "transported" criminals as part of a criminal sentence). An imperfect analogy that goes with the United States would be the settlement of the central and western U.S. around the same time period.
As we have read in history books, being in a new land is not an easy thing, and this series portrays that very well. The series is one of the less "flashy" and "popular" WMT series, but it doesn't make it any worse of a series. We hope that everyone enjoys it as we go through the adventures of a family in Australia.
