Overview

Footprints in the Sand by Virginia Meehan

Arthur Meehan lived and dreamed the development of a cattle station in the Murchison area of Western Australia. His wife Kit Murphy tried to support him and build a family in the Outback of the North West. This is their life as seen by one of their five daughters - a story of love and tragedy, success and misfortune, light-hearted fun and total misery, the good and the bad of the rural heart of Australia.
