"The Goldfields Was not an easy place in which to bring up a family but apart from the usual sore eyes and colds we all came on well and all 11 of ours attended Kookynie State School."
Ivan Elliot whose father operated a brewery at Broadarrow before the turn-of-the-century was one of the families which pioneered the Kookynie station and mining country and later settled at Keysbrook where he built up a prosperous farm and was one of those who introduced polo to Western Australia.
Elliot's account of life in both districts over a span of 83 years is told by means of short, related, campfire-style anecdotes, laced with dry bushman style humour. (back cover)
