AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Robert Lowe's affection and regard for "The Mish", a property in Victoria's southwest, originally an Aboriginal mission, is warmly conveyed in this candid memoir. In the 1950s and 60s when Robert was growing up, "The Mish" was a close knit community made up of the Aboriginal descendants of Framlingham Aboriginal Mission Station, founded in 1865. Robert's adventurous boyhood was a secured and unfettered time spent with his siblings and cousins enjoying hunting, fishing and eel trapping.

'Teachings by the community elders instilled in him a connection to the land and spirituality he would in turn pass on to following generations. When Robert and his bride leave "The Mish", a new chapter begins in a nearby town where acceptance and respect are hard won.'
