“Colin Thiele’s With Dew On My Boots is a fascinating account of what it was like to grow up at a particular time and place: the predominantly German speaking farming community of Eudunda, just another of the Barossa Valley, in the 1920s and 30s.  More social history than autobiography, With Dew ON My Boots is simply written, with Colin Thiele’s characteristic humour, insight, and wisdom.
Complimenting the highly readable text are scores of authentic original period advertisements, news clippings, trademarks and photographs from the 1920s and 30s – many never published before – collected from a great variety of sources.”
