Toodyay Homesteads, Past and Present is an invaluable book for anyone interested in Western Australia's rural heritage.

It describes the evolution of the Toodyay District and the farming properties that have operated since the 1830s and 1840s. The book takes the reader on a journey from Morby Cottage in Northam to the Berkshire Valley homestead in Moora.

Individual chapters reveal the social, administrative, and economic forces that shaped the early development of the Swan River colony, while the homesteads provide insights into the use of local materials, and construction and farming methods up to the present day.

Solid archival research by Rica Erickson is given life through her own experiences and early conversations with original settlers and their descendants.
