No Lilies in This Valley

Stories of Rural Women in the Manning Valley 1850 – 1950

Compiled by Lucy Weller and Ruth Woodward

This book is dedicated to the many women who have made their home in the Manning Valley.

Di Morrissey’s Foreward noted:
“Their perspectives reflected through reminiscences and research show clearly that devotion to the values of hard work, truth, frugality, family, friends and community, greatly enriched the heritage of future generations…It is a fitting tribute to the battlers of bush and town back in those very simple yet difficult days …Their stories are inspiring, and a valuable contribution to the recorded history of the region, and our nation.”
