Item description for Behind the Pub Door by D Clarke Dorothy...

From growing up after the Second World War in Western Australia where the chooks were psychotic and the dunny was dangerous, to serving beers to the miners from the Kalgoorlie goldfields, Dorothy Dickhart Clarke has experienced the 'real' Australia of Outback pubs and country race meets. Life on the goldfields is tough, but what shines brighter than the gold nuggets in the ashtrays is the sense of humour and laid back attitude of those who live and work in the towns. Not only will you get a chance to meet colourful characters like Charlie Banana, Shifty, Nifty and Swifty, but you will learn about the history of the goldfield towns, their hotels and the people who have passed through them. What was under Shimmy Mirinzie's bed? Who nicked Mrs McLarty's ducks at Christmas time? With an intimate and often first-hand knowledge of local history, Dorothy Dickhart Clarke's fond and sometimes hilarious memories will give you a glimpse into what life really is like from Behind the Pub Door. Author Bio- Dorothy Dickhart Clarke had a country upbringing and married very young, travelling with the Royal Australian Army for six years. With a nursing career behind her, she returned to Western Australia where she worked and studied with the Swan Brewery group to become a chef and then ran her own businesses. After four children and a divorce, she took a refresher course in nursing and worked in aged care. Remarriage in 1998 saw her travelling Australia with her present husband Ronald C. Clarke who is in the mining industry. To relax, she plays guitar and listens to country music.
