AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Most of the poems in the volume are set in rural western New South Wales, and Stone poignantly examines many childhood memories of family and notable events. In many there are echoes of a world lost forever but the tone is never sentimental. Memory is revitalised and imbued with an original freshness. (Publisher's blurb, back cover).
