AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This collection of writing about childhood in Australia contains more than 120 first hand accounts by protagonists or first hand observers. Particular emphasis has been given to the 'insight of children's responses to the large occasions such as war or depression as well as to the domestic dramas of daily life.' The material is arranged chronologically within four thematic sections: Roughing it (1788-1849); Moving Out and Moving In (1850-1889); Old Ways, New Ways (1890-1929); Growing Up with Certainty (1930-1949).
