In 1913, when she was 54 years old, Daisy Bates went to live in the deserts of South Australia. And there she stayed, with occasional interruptions, for almost 30 years.
She left a detailed record of her life in her letters, her published articles, her book The Passing of the Aborigines, and in notes scribbled on paper bags, old railway timetables and even scraps of newspaper.
In Daisy Bates in the Desert, Julia Blackburn explores the ancient and desolate landscape where Daisy Bates says she was most happy. There are meetings with the people who knew her, and slowly the facts of her life are allowed to emerge. (publisher blurb)
