The Sausage Tree celebrates the favorite childhood game of the authors Rosalie Medcraft and Valda Gee. This award-winning memoir tells of the sisters' childhood spent during the Depression in smalltown Tasmania. For the family of nine, thrift was a virtue and home-grown food and hand-made clothing a necessity. In later years, they learned of their Aboriginal heritage as descendants of Manalargenna, leader of the Trawlwoolway people of Cape Portland in north-east Tasmania.
