In 1902, newly-married Jeannie Gunn (Mrs Aeneas Gunn) left the security and comfort of her Melbourne home to travel to the depths of the Northern Territory, Australia, where her husband had been appointed manager of 'The Elsey', a large cattle station. One of the very few white women in the area, she was at first resented by people on and around the station, till her warmth and spirit won their affection and respect. This is her moving and simple account of her life amidst the beauty and cruelty of the land, and the isolation and loneliness. Download and start listening now!

    " Even though I loved the story (seen the movie many moons ago) the language was a little bit of struggle for me. (Dare I admit it, but I borrowed the movie on Netflix and rewatched it instead of finishing the book). "

    " an Australian classic - glad I read it for that reason. Makes you appreciate a different time in Australia, in comparison with today. "

    " Okay I know this is historically an important Australian novel. I liked a number of parts, mostly the first twenty-five pages and the last two but overwhelmingly this was a dull read. "

    " Was great to travel through the outback that she writes of, otherwise I don't know if it would be that exciting of a read. "

    " Great account of life as a women in the "outback" of early 19th century Australia. "

    " This was a free download or cheap; either way, I wound up loving the story and hated to reach the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyla | 2/20/2012

    " This is one of my favourite books. Vivid descriptions of life in the Australian bush. Lots of great characters. Whenever I am having a perfect restorative cup of tea I think about how they could live without anything except tea. "

    " I read this entirely in the Northern Territory, which helped my appreciation for the book and for Territorians. Not much of a plot, just a historical account of a year in the bush. "

    " Captures an era, a place, a people in the wonderful poetic prose of a bygone period. Wonderful reading. Evocative literary magic. Magically evocative literature. "
