'Told through the eyes of the middle child, Roxanna, this is a story of the alternating current of fortune and failure that rocks a close-knit, turn-of-the-century Australian family as it strives to emulate the tenacity and endurance of the Mulga trees.
Rich in nostalgic images of the gold mining era, The Mulga Trees is a strong and beautifully written tale set against a harsh Australian backdrop. It gives surprisingly fresh treatment to a much loved theme in Australian literature.'
