  • A section of Chapter III called 'The Well-loved Wombat' details Mitchison's travels in Australia with (Australian) artist Clifton Pugh (q.v.). (pp. 107-112)
  • Author's note: 'I have been writing about other countries, on and off, for a long time, sometimes in newspaper articles, or here and there when a bit of description comes into a book. But, for a clear picture, the best recall is often from my own letters...Apart from the letters, I have kept diaries, more or less detailed, from time to time; I quote from these when they are relevant...In this way the view of travel comes through the eyes and mind of someone who was in her late twenties in the earliest pieces in this book, half a century older in the latest...' N. M. / Carradale / September 1980
