Memories of a Migrant by Kathleen Rumble

A collection of short stories between 1914 to 1922. These stories reflect the contrast between England and the Rumble family’s new home, Tenindewa in the Australian bush. Seen through the eyes of a teenage girl and the adjustments the family had to make.


  1. The lovely lady was my great aunty. I am the grand daughter of Manford Rumble, Alex’s brother.

  2. On page 30 is the story of the Tenindewa Tornado. Tom and Leo as they were referred to are Tom and Leo Critch who lived and farmed nearby and did clearing under contract (with an axe of course in those days)
