Among the Willows and Wild Things by Ann Page, edited by Margaretta Pos | PB | Limited Edition
The Fingal Valley Nature Diary of a Young Girl in the 1930s
Ann Page set out to explore the Fingal Valley in Tasmania and eighty years on, her daughter, Margaretta Pos, gives the reader the chance to join her. The teenager had a nature diary in mind but what she produced was a stunning portrait of the valley in all its beauty, in all its seasons; in all its hardship.
All those years ago, Ann could not have known that her extensive writings would not only record the wildlife of time and place but become a vital social history of life in rural Tasmania between the two great wars.
There is something for everyone in this beautifully written book; for those seeking Tasmanian history in general, for those with a specific interest in wildlife, to those who enjoy a portal into a world that has vanished.
