This is a memoir of days in the early and mid 20th Century of a girl who rode her pony to school each day; and what family life was like in a rural area of New Zealand. Gwen Mackenzie is remembers how the grocer drove to the farm each week to get an order from her mother; of times when the sheep shearing gang came each year to help the farmer; of local farming competitions where her mother got first prize for jams and baking.
