Product Overview

From the 1800s to the onset of World War 1, pioneers making their homes in outback Australia were joined by their wives, many of them whom had no idea of the difficulties and dangers ahead.

These women encounted conditions which would test their resilience and resourcefullness to the utmost: relentless heat, dust and isolation; hostile wildlife; no medical facilities; and never-ending, backbreaking work.

'Great Pioneer Women of the Outback' profiles ten female pioneers, from Jeannie Gunn, author of the 'Never Never' to equally remarkable but lesser known women, such as Emma Withnell in Western Australia and Evelyn Maunsell in Queensland.
