90 Years of an Interesting Life
by Kath Doherty
The wisdom of age can be no more clear than in the writings of Kath Doherty (known affectionately to many as Auntie Kath) as she draws on a 95-year old memory still as sharp as a tack, to take us back through the years to a time that we modern dwellers could barely recognise, let alone live the lifestyle.
Kath reflects on a time when the last realms of the Tasmanian Aboriginal were a part of the landscape and flint-hard settlers were forging homes in the unforgiving bush. Kath has been an important historian for many decades, especially with her writings about the early settler history in the north of the state, and is one of the original founders of the conservation movement in Tasmania.
Some of her aboriginal writings has been considered so important that it has been placed in the government archives. This is not just a story for past generations but also for the new generation who need to know where they came from.
