A lovely story about a young woman growing up in the Australian outback, travelling around a bit before settling down in N.T.

I'm so sorry for the delay -- I've been sick for the last two weeks (sinus-related, so don't worry, I won't be mailing germs with the book! ;)). At any rate this book should be moving again shortly. Thanks! :)

Just a quick note to apologize for the delay in shipping this book -- my illness turned into bronchitis, so I've been down for the count for a little bit. I'll have this in the mail next week to the next reader!

What a wonderful story and a fascinating woman. She makes me appreciate how hardy and strong woman can be and how easy we have it now compared with earlier in time.

I hope that I might exhibit half her courage and determination.

Sorry it took me so long to finish this book, I just couldn't get through it but I also didn't want to just give up. So...I finally finished and it was ... OK. But it wasn't great and the farther I got into it the harder it got to finish. But I'm done and ready to send it on...just waiting for the address.

9/29/08 -- Sending to next reader (kayjay33) today!

Mayse Young had quite an unusual life. The story begins in 1913 and continues until 1974 when Typhoon Tracy destroyed her home once again. She raised a large family with little help from her hard drinking husband Joe . He only seemed to come home often enough to get her pregnant again.
The book is spattered with local expressions such as Chooks which I think are chickens, willy-willies (whirlwinds) going for a bogey (a swim) and one that I did not find the meaning for. The fellow was "humping his bluey"
I am waiting for the next reader to send her address ,then I will have the book on its way.

I've pulled this from the dusty book shelves for Move-It March, these are books I was excited to read when they arrived but, for one reason or another, they never get anywhere near the top of the reading pile. I have 30-50 pages to give the book a go, if it's a non-starter it'll be released that week, if it's great, bonus, I keep reading.
