First published in 1908, this is a classic account of a year of life spent on a remote Australian cattle station. Though styled as a novel, the book is based on author Aeneas Gunn's experiences as wife of the manager of a cattle station in the Northern Territory. Infused with a sense of life on the land, the story recounts her struggles and triumphs to fit in as one of the first white women seen in the area. We of the Never-Never has been hailed as a minor masterpiece, and Marie-Louise Walker performs a beautiful narration with sensitive characterizations.

Dated, paternalistic account of a woman's year on a cattle station in Australia. She gives everyone a nickname and uses a stylized language for the cook and aboriginals that is offensive by today's standards.
