A really good book!!! It covers 3 generations of a family trying to make a living in the Outback of Australia with sheep. I really enjoyed reading it. It also explained what women had to go through during those times. They really didn't have too many choices, but this book made the main female characters a lot tougher and better to overcome obstacles that got in their way. I would recommend this book.
