Overview

As tough, spirited, warm and funny as the woman herself, From Strength to Strength is the inspirational story of Sara Henderson's extraordinary courage and determination.

In 1959, Sara met American war hero and shipping magnate Charles Henderson III, and so began what she calls the world's most demanding, humiliating and challenging obstacle course any human could be expected to endure.

Three years after their marriage, Charles presented Sara with her new home, a tin shack in a million acres of red dust. Bullo River. After twenty years of back-breaking work on this remote Northern Australian cattle station, Charlie's death revealed that Sara had not only been left with a floundering property, but also with a heart-breaking mountain of debt.

With very little to lose, Sara and her daughters, Marlee and Danielle, took up the challenge of rebuilding Bullo River ... with such tremendous results that in 1991 Sara was named the Businesswoman of the Year. This best-selling autobiography of Sara's story has touched the hearts of people all over Australia.

'Everyone has a book in them, they say, but not everyone has the kind of story Sara Henderson tells, and tells well.' — THE BULLETIN

Meet the Author

Sara Jane Henderson (15 September 1936 – 29 April 2005) was an Australian pastoralist and author. She was named Businesswoman of the Year in 1991 for managing the Bullo River cattle station, 360 kilometres south-west of Darwin in the Northern Territory. In 1993 she published her autobiography From Strength to Strength which focused on her family's efforts to manage Bullo River after her husband died in 1985. She became a spokesperson for BreastScreen Australia and urged women over 50 to have regular mammograms to discover breast cancer. Ironically, in 2000 she discovered that she herself had breast cancer. The tumour was removed, but her cancer recurred and she died at a hospital in Caloundra, Queensland on 29 April 2005.

    Great read

    This book was a bit slow to get into, but once the author's life direction became apparent I couldn't put this book down. A great story of success and failure and the trials and tribulations of life on an outback station in Australia. Success despite adversity and some great stories of the people who became part of her life over the years. There was humour and sadness all in one book
