From the back of the book:
Fencer, horsewoman, dogger, roo skinner, goat hunter, cook, hard-working mother and backbone of two generations in the high hill country of the Pilbara.

Florence Corrigan's life starts taking shape in an extremely isolated childhood and transforms when she escapes from the bush. The education about society continues on her travels around Australia and culminates when she meets her future husband over a lost bet in a strange beer garden. Florence's life is a vigorous journey of discovery of people, places, and self. This is compounded by single motherhood, forced adoption in the sixties - when society thought it knew better - and self-taught literacy.

Story as told to Loreen Brehaut.
