Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
One women's journey from a childhood in Australia's outback to adulthood as a successful American career woman. The Road From Coorain is about Everywoman, for it is about childhood loneliness, anguished parent-child relationships, dawning sensibility, discovering a vocation, and finding one's own sense of self.
"A remarkable memoir....A tale of 'guilt transformed into an intellectual calling,' the awakening at once of a heart and a historian." Verlyn Klinkenborg, New York Times Book Review
"Sheer delight...A graceful, thoughtful, vibrantly detailed book...teeming with discoveries." Alida Becker, Washington Post Book World
"A wonderful book...A fresh exploration of those eternal questions: Where am I from? How has that shaped me? Where do I belong?...A rare sensibility informs it." Charlotte Innes, Philadelphia Inquirer
