Famous cookbook author Mina Rawson also wrote a series of reminiscences published in the 1920s. In this series, she focuses on her ‘frontier’ years in the Great Sandy Strait. Between 1880 and 1883, Mina and her husband Lance attempted to establish a fishing station at Boonooroo. There they lived alongside local Aboriginal families, who did their best to help them out. This is a history of friendship, conflict, resilience and survival.

About the speaker: Jodi Frawley is Principal Historian with Stonehouse Research, which specialises in environmental history work. She is currently working on a novel about Mina Rawson’s life.
