              Scottish-born Robert Wales sailed into Sydney Harbour during WWII, and knew he wanted to stay. But a wife and five young kids later, he was choking in the city and doctors prescribed fresh country air. In 1953, with no experience and only knowledge he'd picked up from a few books..., he uprooted his family and set out to establish a sheep farm in the bush. When they arrive on a lonely hill in northern New South Wales, they have no electricity, no running water, no telephone and no choice but to make this their home. From Angela Wales, eldest of the five kids, comes this extraordinarily vivid and evocative account of the next ten years as they try to tame six thousand acres of bush and navigate the challenges of country life. Filled with drama and hilarity, joy and back-breaking toil, BAREFOOT IN THE BINDIS portrays a childhood spent in the outback, and is a sensational picture of Australia past.

              A circle of pine trees, a sagging wire fence, and a roof that was once painted red. 'There it is,' said Dad. In 1953, after doctors prescribed fresh country air for his health, Scottish-born Robert Wales uprooted his young family from the city life of Sydney and set out to establ...ish a sheep farm in the bush. What he lacked in experience and expertise, he made up for in enthusiasm. Or so he hoped. When the family arrived on a lonely hill in northern New South Wales, they had no electricity, no running water, no telephone and no choice but to make that tangle of bush their home. From Angela Wales, eldest of the five kids, comes this extraordinarily vivid and evocative account of the next ten years as they tried to tame six thousand acres and navigate the challenges of country life. Filled with drama and hilarity, joy and back-breaking toil, BAREFOOT IN THE BINDIS portrays a childhood spent in the bush, and is a sensational picture of Australia past.
