1 Alexander, Alison and Prue Torney-Parlicki A Wealth of Women Australian Women's Lives from 1788 to the Present
Australia Duffy & Snellgrove 2001 Papeback Very Good None issued 23.5cm 
Book is in jolly good order, only 2 lib stamps (no card/pocket marks at all),300pp with numerous bw photo sections throughout, pp clean & tightly bound, approx 600g, Here is the story of the lives of ordinary Australian women from 1788 to the present. Drawing on the information provided by hundreds of families, as well as material and photographs from archives never before published, Alison Alexander has created an enthralling and different history of a nation. While famous women get a brief mention, this is mainly the story of the rest of us. It contains humour and despair, tragedy and considerable achievements, many of them unsung until now. The book is enlivened with brief and often funny stories of individual women's hopes and experiences, while a series of 'snapshots' reminds us of the changes in important aspects of life, from fashion to educations, from cooking to health.
