Cider Gums & Currawongs - the Lake Country of Tasmania to the 1950s

Cider Gums & Currawongs  - the Lake Country of Tasmania to the 1950s
Cider Gums & Currawongs contains a wealth of photographs and other material assembled to create a detailed history of Tasmania's high country up until the 1950s when roads, cars and modern communications brought rapid and permanent lifestyle change.

Gwen Hardstaff spent much of her childhood at St Patricks Plains in Tasmanian's Central Highlands. She has happy memories of a time when you made your own fun and learned to live close to and love the natural world. Gwen has assembled a plethora of information about the largely vanished life of the high country horsemen, shepherds, fur trappers, the people who constructed Tasmania's revolutionary hydroelectric power schemes and the pioneers who preceded them in this tough but beautiful part of Tasmania. And before Europeans there were the first Tasmanians: the Aboriginal people who for a thousand and more generations moved from coast to high country as the seasons dictated.
