Overview

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

These women encountered conditions which would test their resilience and resourcefulness 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 "We of the Never Never," to equally remarkable but lesser known women, such as Emma Withnell in Western Australia and Evelyn Maunsell in Queensland. Building on the women's records and her own knowledge of Australian history, Susanna de Vries documents the grit and determination it took to build what many today would consider an extraordinary life.
