Memories by James A “Jim” Clarke, the eldest son of 1930s scheme settlers Edwin and Ida, is out now at the Walpole Community Resource Centre (CRC).
An attempt to record his life story, Memories does not follow any chronological order; rather it is written “as I remember events”.
“I have been told by quite a few people that I should write it down, for when I am gone much will be forgotten,” Mr Clarke says.
“I do not consider my life to be unusual” he says, yet his memoirs contain accounts of “situations that most people do not experience in their lifetime”.
Memories is available at the CRC for $35 per copy.
