About the Author

Robin Bell is a farmer who lives on and manages the family dairy farm in Victoria, Australia, that her grandfather bought in 1910. Robin's interest in history, particularly the nineteenth century, developed when she began to research the lives of her ancestors before they left Great Britain and after they landed in Melbourne, Australia, in 1839.
