Women of the Outback

Sue Williams

Drought, flood, harrowing isolation and horrific accidents… the Australian outback is no place for a lady. But the women of the Outback are a different breed- tough, resilient and endlessly resourceful. Drought, flood, harrowing isolation and horrific accidents… the Australian outback is no place for a lady. But the women of the Outback are a different breed- tough, resilient and endlessly resourceful. They’re both the backbone and the heart of Australia, keeping their farms going, their families together and their communities alive - and often against overwhelming odds. Maree was left with three small daughters when her husband and young son were killed in a light plane crash. Molly lived alone in a 1920s homestead in the middle of the Simpson Desert for twenty years without even a phone. Alice admits she couldn’t tell a cow from a bull when she first went to live in the Outback. This book tells the inspiring stories of fourteen remarkable women, from high-achievers to everyday heroes. Their tales are often heart-rending and regularly touched by tragedy, but are always life-affirming. They portray Outback Australian women as they really are - and as we all wish we might be. ‘Every word cried out to be read … a remarkable book.’ Bookseller & Publisher ‘Humbling and awe-inspiring.’ Woman’s Day
