Daisy Bates in the Desert




'This is the story of a remarkable individual life, a story rendered the more peculiar and fascinating by Blackburn's graceful prose and ever-surprising vision' - The Times

In 1913, when she was 54 years old, Daisy Bates went to live in the deserts of South Australia. And there she stayed, with occasional interruptions, for almost 30 years.

In Daisy Bates in the Desert Julia Blackburn explores the ancient and desolate landscape where Ms Bates says she was most happy. She fuses her own imagination and experience with that of Daisy Bates, unitl she seems to be recalling this other life as it it were her own.
