AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Beside the forestry road to Mount Delusion, on the edge of the Victorian High Country, stand two old huts known as Strobridge's huts. The two-roomed hut facing the track, built of milled timber around 1935, is the more recent. This was Lucy's hut. Behind is a much older miner's hut built of slab walls and bark roof with a dirt floor-Ella's hut. Mother and daughter lived side by side but never spoke. When Ella died, Lucy learned she must use her wits to survive in this harsh landscape.
This story is based on the life of Lucy Strobridge from Brookville in the Gippsland mountains of Victoria. Very little is known of this enigmatic woman.
'While I have tried to be true to the facts of her life, it is, nevertheless, a work of fiction.'  (Publication summary)
