Price: $8.00
With the cold war between the United States and the Soviet Union at its height, a young couple migrates from Boston to Australia to escape imminent nuclear war. They are surprised to meet many people in Sydney who had moved from North America and Europe for the same reason. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, had migrated to Australia and New Zealand to find shelter. The Australian press refers to them as "nuclear migrants." AUSTRALIA YEARS reveals a creative young woman's search for a meaningful life in an unfamiliar land. Personal events unfold amidst the beauty of the Australian landscape and the historic backdrop of the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, and the women's liberation movement.

    "Touching, Intelligent and Compassionate!" This is a fascinating and courageous book with insightful glimpses into 1960s U.S., Australia, the peace movement, race relations and real life through the wise eyes of peace activist, Anna Johnson. She catapults you into a world you may have only read about, and brings alive the famous and not so famous people who have helped shape history while generously sharing her personal experiences with life and love.

    "australia years" Anna johnson is a gifted storyteller and a keen observer of her human and natural environment. She takes you into the political and sociological landscape of Austrlia in the 1960's and turns it into a story that you don't want to go on. The book is enhanced with photos of people and places that she speaks about and by the end you'll feel like you know them. There are also several of Annas poems that reveal her compassion, care and love for peple and places. I believe that you'll enjoy this book and like me want to read read more by Anna Johnson. Yes, I'm a fan.

    "Australia Years" I wish I could read it again for the first time. Anna’s writing made me feel as if I was there with her. I was inspired by her efforts to make the world a better place. Susan Perrine
