Description

This book is a fascinating insight into the daily lives of women from a variety of backgrounds - including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Chinese, Indian and German. Pioneer Women provides a unique portrait of how women set up and ran their remote bush homes and the work they did outside the home - shearing, droving, managing properties, teaching and governessing. Includes a wealth of photographs contributed by museums and descendants of many of the pioneers.
