The story of boats, storms and near shipwreck; of adventure, and self-reliance, set against a dramatic landscape. This is the life story - and love story - of an extraordinary couple, Win & Clyde Clayton, who made a home in the wilderness of South West Tasmania.
Win and Clyde Clayton's personalities were as opposite as their passions, and yet they made a fine partnership, and a home, in a rugged and road less corner of Tasmania-the far South West. They worked their fishing boat together, weathering life-threatening storms on a coast notorious for its treacherous weather, a coast that Clyde had fished since he was fourteen. Between forays away at sea, Win created a home and garden in the wilderness. She was no stranger to isolation having worked with her father, Charlie, and brother Deny King, on the South West tin fields.
Deny King's daughter, Janet Fenton, recounts Win and Clyde's adventures with zest, describing a way of life and connection with a wild landscape from first-hand experience.
'Partly a personal memoir, largely a meticulously researched history, Win & Clyde opens the window on the lives of two people who were not in the common mould'
- Christobel Mattingly, author of King of the Wilderness
