In the Middle of Nowhere is a story of beating the odds, of the power of love and the strength of family ties to overcome every obstacle.

In the Middle of Nowhere is a story of beating the odds, of the power of love and the strength of family ties to overcome every obstacle.

Terry met John at St Vincents Hospital, where she was training to be a nurse and he was recuperating from a horse-riding accident. They wrote love letters to each other for five years before marrying. Terry's new home on the huge pastoral lease of Riveren consisted of a tent and a newly drilled bore. The newlyweds literally built their station from scratch, brick by brick, and raised and educated their four children on the station.

In the Middle of Nowhere is a story of beating the odds, of the power of love and the strength of family ties to overcome every obstacle. It is a story told with warmth and a knowledge of the bush, its people, and the issues facing the Northern Territory of Australia today.
