Daisy Bates in the Desert: A Woman's Life Among Aboriginesby Julia Blackburn
Synopses & Reviews
In 1913, at the age of 54, Daisy Bates went to live in the deserts of South Australia. Brilliantly reviewed, astonishingly original, this "eloquent and illuminating portrait of an extraordinary woman" (New York Times Book Review) tells a fascinating, true story in the tradition of Isak Dinesen and Barry Lopez.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 231-232).
