    1. I listened to this in audio book form. It was relaxing and gave what I believe to be an accurate and interesting account of outback life.


    2. totally loved ita real eye opener of country life. The good and hard times of living in such a remote place . heading up there in a week and now can't wait to get therehope my experience is as great.ame its only for two daysI would gladly leave the city behind and live there


    3. Listened on audio. Very interesting description of a year living in the back of beyond - almost inspired me to give it a go in spite of all the hardships described! The sense of community and mateship was wonderful.
