From the sagas of biblical women crossing the desert to the novels of Willa Cather, stories of women contending with a frequently brutal and lonely landscape have long proved fascinating to the human spirit. In this audiobook, Sue Williams provides another testament, this time set in rural Australia in modern times.
Performed here by Catherine Milte in a voice that commands respect, Women of the Outback provides 12 character studies drawn from interviews with women who have managed life in the outback, whether by choice or necessity. Listeners will meet stay-at-home moms, business owners, and adventurers all battling some combination of drought, loneliness, and the hot, hot sun.
