What did you like best about this story?
I was in Australia at the time. I enjoyed the real people/ places.
I very much enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The narrator does an excellent job at bringing the words to life. The author clearly has a passion for the subject and focused on all the little things, as well as the bigger things, that make a historical book readable and accessible. I felt I understood much more what life was like from the perspective of women, which is a viewpoint often overlooked in preference for the deeds of the men, whose stories have traditionally taken precedence. One thing I would have liked to see more of is recognition of the lives and stories of Australia's original inhabitants and how things were from their perspective. To leave these details out is doing the same thing as historical accounts that only focus on (white) men, i.e. giving the reader only part of the story and hence a (perhaps unintentionally) biased overall picture of life in the outback of the early 20th century.
