Roundabout at Bangalow: An Intimate Chronicle by Shirley Walker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Exploring four generations of life in Australia, this intricate personal history shows the insularity of small towns, rigid class and caste divisions, and the effects of two world wars on Australian lives. Told with humor and a dry wit, these extraordinary stories of pioneering struggles, deep religious divisions, and conflict within the family help navigate the history of Australia--from the abundance of the eastern Byron Bay hinterland to the hardships of the northern soldier-settler farm Walker and her husband established in North Queensland. Fascinating and engaging, this familial recollection is a revealing study of Australia's past.


Shortlisted for Westfield/Waverley Library Literary Award 2002.
