John Paul Brooks finally settled with his mother Emily at Balbinia station, some 60 miles inland from Israelite Bay and thirty miles east of Balladonia. He built a one room hut of limestone for his mother and sister, a store room, a water tank of granite and a living room for himself.

The book titled Born to Command – not to take orders! explores the history of the Brooks family.
