Saddle in the Kitchen will appeal to people of all ages who value a happy home and the simple pleasures of country life.
Enga Smith's 'Memories of a Childhood' evokes an atmosphere of love and tranquillity, while filling the days with a sense of wonder and adventure.
This is an absorbing, beautifully observed and tenderly recorded account of a young girl's childhood on a Western Australian farm in the 1940s.
Anyone with even a passing acquaintance with life in the bush will happily identify with the settings and incidents. Those who prefer just to read about it will find this account of a country childhood completely fascinating.
Saddle in the Kitchen is a classic of Australiana that will be read and re-read with pleasure for generations to come.
