What began as a description of this garden became the story of a community. While researching the garden at Old Bridge House for a conservation report, the writer was drawn into the lives of the settlers at 'the Margaret', as thesmall founding community of Margaret River was known. Tracing the families associated with Old Bridge House, this story follows their links through the generations and underlines the roles they played in shaping Margaret River as it is today. It charts their many sagas and supplies insight into the personalities of those involved. Liberally supplemented with extracts from diaries and letters, it provides the reader with a strong sense of 'being there' as each leave their mark on Margaret River's emerging social heritage.
