About the Author

Dianne Cramer tells her story of two governess years in both South Australia and Northern Territory, then as the wife of a contractor on both a sheep station and cattle station, and finally as the Missus on a huge cattle station. The story documents the trials and triumphs of life in the bush where experiences were shared and appreciated by the people of the area. After leaving the bush Dianne lived on various cattle properties in South Australia and Victoria, until her husband’s retirement where they built a mud-brick house in Central Victoria. Dianne lives there to this day.
