Second hand book
In 1936, Elyne Mitchell was brought by her husband to live at Towong Hull, his family property below the Snowy Mountains. In this rugged and beautiful country, rich in native wildlife, summer brings burning heat and threat of bushfires, while in winter there are storms and floods to be endured. Elyne Mitchell’s empathy with fragile and easily destroyed ecosystems and her intense responses to the wilder forces of nature are threads which run through all her books. They form the backbone of this lyrical and evocative account of the life and work on Towong hill.
