To Work To Wed To Weep To Wander M. Pollock Signed

Mabel Pollock (nee Jam ieson) was born in the summer of 1927 on Cape Saunders Lighthouse station, New Zealand. Her childhood to 16 years of age is recorded in her first book as Kate in The Children from the Lighthouse. (see my other listings)

Her second book To Work To Wed To Weep To Wander follows her experiences and occupations from her nursing career to her departure from New Zealand in 1974.

Mabel returned to New Zealand from Europe via the Hippy Trail in 1976 to acquire nine grandchildren; lose her daughter; build a native New Zealand forest from a steep abandoned 7 acre rubbish dump; design and promote an alternative national New Zealand flag and to travel countries of the world from Iceland to Antarctica.

Her photographic record of the creation of Pollyc park - the MaBarrett forest 1993 to 2007- illustrates Mabels practical determination to accomplish every task she sets herself and to bring life and beauty to her dreams.

Devonport children and residents of all generations know her as Polly.
