The author's childhood in South Canterbury, New Zealand. Hosken's first book, "Life on a Five Pound Note," told of her married life in the South Island's MacKenzie Country. Here she looks back to her childhood in the Timaru area of South Canterbury, recalling the land-owning class and many of the characters and other folk less well-off. She does this with wry humour while recording a human story of a now distant past.
Illustrated throughout with monochrome images and plates.
