Hilda Metcalf Hunt / Blackberries and Golden Wattle: The Thorns and Beauty of a Childhood in the Adelaide Hills

Memoir
  • Hilda Metcalf Hunt / Blackberries and Golden Wattle: The Thorns and Beauty of a Childhood in the Adelaide Hills
‘Aunty Hilda was a born countrywoman, tuned in to Mother Nature from the start, with a keen eye for detail, character and sense of recall. Memoirs like this - from a farm setting, humble yet charmingly adventurous a century ago - deserve respect within the increasingly urban sprawl of the Hills district she once explored so closely. ‘ - Judy Pearce
Blackberries and Golden Wattle is an evocative and delightful life story of three families, of the fragility of life, resilience and recollections, recounted through the eyes of the author. A social history which sketches the development of an era, a journey of exploration and endurance through hardship, struggles, love and kindness. The resilience of these generations is celebrated when the author successfully achieves her dreams and a new beginning. It was only in later years that she appreciated the enduring bond with her father, who was her rock.’ - Janice Nitschke, Manager Libraries Tourism and Information Services at Wattle Range Council
