Publisher's Summary

Inspiring and unforgettable, Diamonds and Dust is a classic story of a woman finding her destiny in the furthest reaches of the outback.

Sheryl McCorry grew up in Arnhem Land carrying crocodiles to school for show and tell. When she was 18, Broome beckoned, and it was there that - only hours after being railroaded into marriage by a fast-talking Yank - she locked eyes with Bob McCorry, a drover and buffalo shooter. When her marriage ended after only a few months, they began a romance that would last a lifetime and take them to the Kimberley's harshest frontiers.

As the only woman in a team of stockmen, Sheryl soon learned how to run rogue bulls and to outsmart the neighbours in the toughest game of all - mustering cattle. The playing field was a million acres of unfenced, unmarked boundaries. But Sheryl soon saw that to survive in the outback a woman needed goals. Hers was to become the first woman in the Kimberley to run two million-acre cattle stations. But it was to come at an unimaginable cost.

Inspiring and unforgettable, Diamonds and Dust is a classic story of a woman finding her destiny in the furthest reaches of the outback.

from the heart

Nicely read with an Aussie accent. A good story from the sticks [ Aussie slang for our huge outback, which has a charm and toughness which is unique].

Diamonds and Dust (unabridged)

For those of us who do not have a feel for the vastness of the Aussie Outback, this is a very interesting book in that it describes how tough the people are who live in that area. A good book.

You'll tell all of your mates!

What an inspiration!!! I loved hearing of Sheryl's life. Her life adventures left me wanting to hear more. I kept "running into this book" and one day relented. I'll always pay attention to those books that seem to fall off the shelf into your hand, this was one of them and it changed me. Thank you Sheryl.
