A Piece of Good Land by Val Carter
In 1955 virgin scrub land was released for agriculture in Badgingarra, a small town in the Shire of Dandaragan, approximately 200km north of Perth.
Ron and Val Carter saw an opportunity to create a viable farm with grasses and cattle, a place to raise their young family.
Val was widowed in 1996 after she and Ron had retired to Mandurah. Since then Val has doggedly stuck to the task of finally completing this publication, A Piece of Good Land.
This is their story of courage, faith, family and a hard working community that never gave up.
