The Jacaranda Trail

 The Jacaranda Trail

A Journey of Discovery

Down Under

 Would you just sell everything, ditch your plans
And buy a ticket to the other side of the world?
In her twenties, the author did just that
And got much more than she could ever have bargained for ...
Raised in England of British-Australian parentage, the author sells her possessions and flies to her birthplace in Sydney with no solid plans or timetable in mind.

Discovering by chance that she has another sister, a whole new world opens up: from living on a camel farm and picnicking with kooka­burras, to paddock baths, unconventional lifestyles, City Farming and much, much more...

But, before she returns to England, she has one last thing to do: to go in search of her grandmother – the woman who left her daughter to be brought up by cruel nuns in an orphanage…

"Not so much a how-to of family history research, as what can happen when the results are in."
This book is an easy read, never stops moving and will appeal to a wide range of readers, including lovers of travel writing, family history buffs and those interested in less conventional lifestyles.
Chapter titles include: Letting the Possum out of the Bag; Rainbow Pants Not Essential; Bald as a Blue-Tongued Lizard; and WWOOFing with Pigs.
