Editorial Reviews

This memoir from modern day pioneer Terry Underwood - performing her own work here - tells the story of a young nurse who abandons her career in Sydney for a life of adventure and romance in the Australian Outback. Terry relocated to the Northern Territories soon after marrying husband John, a born-and-raised cattleman. The newlyweds bore a well on a remote patch of land that would become their home for the next 40 years: a real-life cattle station. As Terry recalls life amid remote, inhospitable climes, glimpses of wistful nostalgia fail to mask the steely drive and determination of this resourceful woman. In her sunbaked strains, the bushwoman reminisces on raising a family, herding cattle, and building barns, often without the aid of electricity or running water.

Enjoyable story... narration detracts

I found the story very engaging, realistic and informative (re post war Australia especially), however the narration significantly detracted from my understanding and absorption of the content. Ms Underwood sounds rather like she's a primary school student reciting an English composition. She uses minimal inflection and tone whilst persisting with a kind of naive, sing-song resonance which felt quite irritating to me. It's hard to believe that she is narrating her own work. This would definitely be best read as a hard copy book, unless someone like Caroline Lee or Kate Hood could be seconded to read it.
