Amie Livingstone Stirling's Memories Of An Australian Childhood has captured the imagination of readers for more than 25 years, since its original publication in 1980.
Writing with the feeling of a novelist, Amie tells of her childhood in the isolated High Country Victorian town of Omeo in the 1880s and 90s. She writes about her beloved father, James Stirling, the famous coal-mining pioneer and geologist, and her mother, Elizabeth, a botanist and skilful artist. Her upbringing nurtured a deep love for nature, rational thinking and, above all, equality of the sexes.
