This book focuses on the ordinary lives of people from 1888 to 1990. Through little-known accounts from regional histories, pen portraits, anecdotes, diaries and photographs, McQueen conveys the rich variety of everyday life - what people wore, ate, what sort of houses they lived in and how they were affected by bushfires, disease and working conditions.
