A rare view of a place that has changed and a time that will never be repeated – Broome in the 1920s and 30s – told by Rosemary Hemphill, whose father owned one of the largest fleets of pearling luggers in the state and whose mother longed for the genteel life she had left behind in England. Now in her eighties, Rosemary writes about the arid, red frontier town that was filled with characters, stories and brilliant colours. Told with passion and gentle humour, ‘The Master Pearler’s Daughter’ is a delightful and fascinating look at a world that has long gone. pp. 270 illusts light tanning #0318/110522R
