Austral Road

Author: Kate Bowes

Austral Road is an account of everyday life on the Goldfields during World War II. Although the terrible events of that time are woven through the story, the joys of childhood (some based on true happenings while a few are grounded in the author's imagination) are captured in an era when children had the freedom to roam and explore the countryside. It was a time of simplicity and innocence, hardship and sadness.
