A family farm in the 1950s. 


This is the story of my family's life on our mixed farm in Queensland in the 1950s. My story reflects on a period of Australia's history where, in the absence of modern technology, lateral-thinking, stubbornness, and hard work were the order of the day. Join me as I recall all aspects of my life on the farm, including attending a one-room provisional school, the excitement of visiting the annual local show, and the special event that was shopping day. Experience the challenges of country life - droughts, fire, and flood - and the love and determination of my family, through my eyes as a child growing up and into adulthood.
