Summary The book, as described when launched at Deakin University's CBD premises on 3 April 2013 by Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research) Professor Lee Astheimer, and Pro Vice Chancellor (Arts and Education) Brenda Cherednichenko, is an accomplished memoir which evokes the history of many people's experiences of growing up in Australia in the 1960s and 1970s.  In celebrating memories of Hobart and its nurturing, spiritual heart, the Derwent River the book contributes to discussions of the importance of place, of local areas in determining people’s identities and attachments; dilemmas of population decline, and environment versus development, as shown by the experience of Tasmania; the considerable affection which members of the large Tasmanian diaspora have for their home state; and the problems of continuing concentration of Australia’s population growth in existing very large cities like Melbourne and Sydney.
