B07AUS '.Watershed', Rob Sloane 2012

'.Watershed', Rob Sloane 2012

The move to a rural property on the banks of the Coal River in southern Tasmania heralds a watershed year for a working couple, tempted to swap town life for country acres.

There is a much-neglected farmhouse to renovate, the remnants of an early colonial sandstone building to investigate and restore, and there are trout in the stream to nourish another obsession, fly fishing. But reality soon bites, as this collection of insightful diary extracts reveals.

Blended with the flavours and advantages of country life, there are doubts and there are difficulties. In a year on the land, harsh realities must be faced.

Beneath these seemingly light-hearted and entertaining stories about country living and heritage restoration, lies an undercurrent of discontent. Climate and water are recurring themes.
