From the rear cover, 'The Laheys, Huguenots from La-Hayeville in France, fled persecution there in the sixteenth century and settled in Ireland where some family members remain. Francis and Alicia Lahey left Ireland as tenant farmers in 1862 to be colonists in the new Queensland. They grew arrowroot in what is today's suburban Brisbane, then moved southwards to Pimpama and pioneered large-scale arrowroot production. This led on to sugarmilling and sawmilling. The Lahey name became widely known in the timber industry which included road building and a private tramway at Canungra. It is a story of toil, inventiveness, courage, forward thinking and a strong desire to benefit others. This account traces continuing family values and characteristics, such as a strong identification with place, and love of the land. Through adversity and prosperity the self-reliant Laheys had a sense of community responsibility, involvement in public causes, from shire councils to state parliament, interest in new ideas, scientific research, various sports, and notably in art for all (the artist Vida Lahey) and in landscape conservation (her brother Romeo). In another field May Lahey was the first woman Municipal Court Judge in California in 1929. From contemporary accounts and private letters and recollections by people involved, as well as official archival records, Shirley Lahey tussles with the mysteries of relationship and intertwined lives and gives insight into the shaping of the way of life we enjoy today.'.
