Summary
Written as vividly as any of her novels, Ruth Park's autobiography is a moving, passionate, often funny account of the people and places which influenced her early years. Her isolated childhood in the rainforests of New Zealand fed her fertile imagination; her convent education encouraged her love of words and writing, and the bitter years of the Depression exposed her to poverty and injustice
