AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Hesba Brinsmead was one of the pioneeers of Australian children's literature, some saying she virtually invented the teenage novel. She published 23 novels for children and teenagers. She set out to entertain, and her books are full of humour, and are a fusion of 'truth and romantic vision' set in diverse locations, and have been loved by generations of young people.' (Publication summary)
