Windmills, Wool and Weevils brings together the stories of life recalled through the memories and stories of Constance Barrett-Lennard (nee Parry). The merging of two iconic Western Australian families in the early 1940s through the marriage of Constance Parry and Frank Barrett-Lennard is just the beginning of a life of trials and tribulations raising a family in this remote and harsh Western Australia.
Nanutarra, pastoral land 128km south-west of Onslow, is where life and all of its adventures play out for the Barrett-Lennards. Divulging much about the history of Onslow and Western Australia, this story captures the essence of living in the Nor’West and the impact this pioneering family left on the land. (back cover)
