Publisher's Summary

Author Deb Hunt sets out to discover what makes our Australian farming families tick.
Travelling to properties across the country - from a vast, dusty cattle run in outback Queensland to the wheat belt of Western Australia and dairy farms in Tasmania - and introducing us to eight different families who survive and thrive on the land, these stories provide a window into a way of life that defines the Australian spirit at its best.

bunch of interviews of australian farmers

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

the book is a bunch of several interviews of australian farmers, stories and how it is to live in a farm in a remote location.

I'm interested in plants and growing some (in a small city apartment) and this book gave me perspective on what's it like to farm.

like that to be competitive you'll need equipment (tractors, irrigations etc) and that to be profitable you'll need more land since the prices and profits of (almost everything) dropped since the last generation.

in short, farming (and living in a remote location) isn't romantic.

A fantastic read

Such wonderful word and easy listening. Great 'real' Australian stories with ironic flavour. It would be great to hear more stories of current (newer) Australian farming families to see what has changed.

Fantastic warm and profound story telling

The narration was amazing, could have been the author herself with warmth, feeling and humour.
What a fabulous window into the real farming families of Australia!
