    One thought on “Heart Country”

    1. Droving and wandering the vast Queensland outback was a way of life for Kerry McGinnis and her family. After their mother died when Kerry was young, their father decided to uproot Kerry, her sister Judith and brothers Sian and Patrick and head into the bush. With their livelihood dependant on the whim of Mother Nature, droving was the way to go. But finally, Kerry was fed up with the life – the day in, day out of nothing but hard slog for seven days a week. Living in a man’s world was tough [...]

    2. Loved the concept behind this book : the true story of an outback woman's life who manages to achieve an education & become a writer . The book is written well enough with some lovely descriptions of the scenes experienced, but there is a lot of disjointedness which feels jarring to the reader. Suddenly something random is happening for half a page and that's it. All one hears of it & doesn't seem to fit with the previous paragraphs .

    3. Well they say you can't judge a book by its cover however in this case I believe you can. The cover is beautiful as is the content. It is easy relaxing reading. I am certainly going to seek out the author's other books. I generally prefer memoir, into which category this falls, however will try her fiction books as well. A very talented writer.

    4. Loved this book too,the sequel to "Pieces of blue". I have read it before but enjoyed reading it a second time. I noted the author has written some fiction books too so I have put them on my "to read" list. If you enjoy reading about Australian outback way of life you won't be disappointed.

    5. Another good story continuing on from Pieces of Blue. I think it captures the way it was droving and living off the land not so very long ago in outback Australia.

    6. Another enlightening story about Kerry's experiences of growing up in the Australian Outback. Loving them.

    7. I enjoyed this very much once I got the Australian cattle droving slang meanings in my mind. I thought it was a honest, straightforward, unembellished, interesting and heartfelt account of her life in the outback in the (mostly) 1960s.
