Christine Larsenabout this book: Have you wondered how two 'city slickers' could make a tree change and learn farming? The original 'switch it on' kid meets the wood stove. The pen pushing building estimator meets barbed wire fencing. The auto washing machine girl meets the wood fired copper and (almost) manual washing machine.
Here is the first book in my farming memoir series, 'Old McLarsen Had Some Farms'. Each chapter is a tale about our development in our 'apprenticeship' working on a friend's wheat and sheep farm in Western Australia. Just look at some of the intriguing chapter names -
Bloody Hell... or Heaven?
Ooroo Means Goodbye,
Click Go the Shearers - by Day and by Night, by Gosh.
The entire series of four or five books is planned to encompass 40+ years of our farming career, beginning in the late 1960's and culminating in our retirement farm here in the south-east of South Australia. The tales range from the humorous to the fantastic, the poignant to painful… all designed to enlighten, entertain, even educate about other times and other places.
Life has never been boring, travelling our country roads.
