Mop Stroud, A life in two acts with many scenes – Betty Stroud
This book was written by my Grandmothers Cousin Betty and the book is Betty’s mother’s life story.
I think she has wonderfully captured the essence of Mary aka Mop, as I now feel like I knew her. I found the book interesting and quite enjoyed it, but I don’t know if that it would be of much interest to an outsider, you’d have to be a history buff I guess, as it really is a time capsule of days gone by in old Dubbo NSW.
So I’ll Leave it at that and leave you with a Quote:
“If all people were made to walk in a forest every day & study it, I’m sure there would be more peace & love to man, animals, & all growing things in this old world” – Mop Stroud (1913-1982).
