Title: Mary Cunningham: An Australian Life.
Description: Charnwood, ACT Ginninderra Press, 2007. Reprint, corrected ed. Paperback small octavo, very good condition, black & white photos centre spread, bottom corner tips little creased last few pages, spine little creased, minor edgewear. 254 pp. The story of Mary Cunningham who lived in the Canberra region from the late 1800s. Her life, spanning the last 30 years of the old century and the first thirty years of the new, was bound up with some of the great stories of early nationhood: the prosperity brought by wool, the arrival of Federation, the imperial enthusiasms of the Edwardian era, the creation of the national capital, and the sorrows and losses of the Great War. This biography draws upon both the public record and private correspondence to reveal Mary Cunningham as a sensitive and thoughtful woman, struggling to find a sense of purpose and value in her life at a time of great social change.
