Publisher's Summary

Born in Darwin in 1929, Jacqueline's childhood was spent in a succession of bush towns before she was sent to school in Darwin. Returning to her beloved territory, Jacqueline met and married stockman Ken Hammar, and they moved to a vast property in one of the most inaccessible areas of Australia.
With only a kerosene stove, scant possessions and a bed, Jacqueline’s determination and courage helped her survive many hardships as they created a prosperous 1,000,000 acre cattle station.

Changed my appreciation for Australia and all she has.

The story of Jacqueline's life give a better appreciation for the pioneers of australia than anything else I've seen or read. While only one part of our history, it's spans a good hundred years of the establishment of the foundation of the country.

But don't be fooled, this isn't a history book. It's full of stories as engaging and interesting as any movie
you'll see.

Absolutely wonderful. I'm recommending this book to everyone!
