Notes

"In 1996 and laid off with a broken leg. Lesley Chandler took up a pen and began writing about her ancestors and her early life; stories that she thought future generations might want to know. There are stories of her pioneering timber-merchant great-grandfather and her goldmining World War I soldier grandfather. She writes of growing up during the depression, enlisting as a WAAAF in World War II and becoming a mother in rural South Australia in the 1950s. These episode of her life provide an insight into how people have met life’s challenges in the past and reflect on how having a loving family does indeed make a person lucky."--Back cover.
