Название: Country Houses of Tasmania
Издательство: Allen & Unwin
Tucked into the folds of Tasmania's wild landscape is an array of beautiful historic homes from a time when life was simpler and grander - and perhaps more of an adventure.
The early pastoral settlers of Tasmania were a hardy and eccentric bunch: young men out to make their fortunes; struggling families hoping for a fresh start; and feisty women wanting to make their own mark. From the landed gentry to convicts who'd won their freedom, these men and women created an antipodean England in the elaborate Georgian and Victorian mansions they built. Alice Bennett and Georgia Warner have collected together the stories of these houses, and of the people who have passed through them over the years.
