— Appears in: Walkabout , vol. 36 no. 2 1970; (p. 5-8)
George Johnston remembers the rural Australia of his childhood holidays and observes that these memories 'seem to have hardly any relationship at all to modern Australia' and that he is finding it hard 'to detect any links at all between what is and what was.' He observes that ... 'we have come to a very critical phase in Australia about our self-confrontation and search for self-identity.'
