End of the Road
Becoming a Mallee Wife
At School we learnt about the mallee country in our lessons and I remember disctinctly thinking, “Why would anyone want to live up there?” It wasn’t portrayed in a very good light and seemed to my impressionable young mind the last place on earth one would want to live or farm in. I always said I would never live too far away from the sea anyway.
I ended up doing just that!
This book is an intimate slice of the history of living in the Mallee District. Deborah Hyde shares her real-life experiences with enthusiasm and humour; a true Australian gem!
