Camden's social history

Alan Atkinson's book 'Camden: farm and village life in early NSW' is a fascinating account of the social history of our area. Reading like a novel, its chapters tell the story of families who farmed, worked, married and formed the early community. An appendix gives a snapshot of the Aboriginal people living here at the time and the comprehensive index makes it a useful book for students and researchers. Available for reference and loan at Camden & Narellan libraries.
