As a tender young townie in the revolutionary sixties, Sue steps away from all that is familiar to spend her life with a man she has known for three weeks. With little prelude she is thrown into the deep end of a gritty farming life in a man’s world.
A life of hard work on untamed lands, a two year odyssey through the outback, and months spent in a remote Aboriginal community, reveal to Sue the very character of the Australian landscape.
This is the story of one woman’s metamorphosis, from timid, imaginative child to resilient, worldly woman - a profound journey of self discovery through tragedy, unfettered and often life-threatening adventure, and overwhelming joy.
This true story about living in rural Australia brings joy, tears, and an overwhelming sense of the strength and resilience of the Australian people.
