Pioneer Women of the bush and Outback explores the history and influence of ordinary women of the Australian bush and country towns. Through family photographs, records and museum archives, 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.
This book is a fascinating insight into the daily lives of women from a variety of backgrounds - including Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander women, English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh settlers, Chinese, Indian and German women. A wealth of photographs and memorabilia give a perspective on how the women of Australia have used their drive, stamina and resourcefulness to influence the history of the bush and outback.
