From Western Australia's northern Wheatbelt comes tales of courage and resilience from men and women who have lived and farmed in the harsh but beautiful landscape since European settlement. These stories also capture the cultural beliefs and personal histories of First Australians.
This book draws on historical records and interviews with people who have lived or still live in the Shire of Perenjori. People talk of their efforts to keep family farms viable and the small towns alive through the tribulations of two world wars, the Great Depression, droughts, and rural populations decline.
It tells of lessons learned and bold experiments to revitalise the shire's economy through alternative farming practices and by generating new sources of income from mining and land conservation.
Includes CD ROM audio feature by Bill Bunbury.
