Long before Robyn Davidson wrote Tracks, the extraordinary Ernestine Hill was renowned for her intrepid travels across Australia's vast outback. After the birth of her illegitimate son, Ernestine Hill abandoned her comfortable urban life as a journalist for a nomadic one, writing about this country's vast interior and bringing the outback into the popular imagination of Australians. Throughout the 1930s Ernestine's hugely popular stories about Australia's remotest regions appeared in newspapers and journals around the nation. She still remains famous for her bestselling books The Great Australian Loneliness, The Territory, Flying Doctor Calling and My Love Must Wait. Call of the Outback provides a vivid portrait of Ernestine, from the early brilliance she showed as a child in Brisbane to her later life. In particular it evokes Ernestine's larger-than-life personality, the exotic landscapes she explored and the remarkable characters she met on her travels.

After nearly thirty years in the publishing world, Jennifer Kavanagh became a Quaker and changed her life. At 54, she packed a few belongings and set off with her partner Stephen on a year's journey in the tradition of travelling Quakers, to connect with old and new spiritual influences and "to gain a new perspective, seeing how life is in developing countries, away from the spoilt affluence of this insular part of the world". Why would two people a few years from retirement give up a comfortable life in exchange for discomfort and uncertainty? How do you reconcile yearnings to be in the world and out of it, everywhere and nowhere? The author gives a frank and humorous account of their experiences, stormy relationship and spiritual journey. As they travel through the Americas, the Pacific, Thailand, India, Mongolia and Russia - meeting others of like mind and heart, helping with social projects where they can - Jennifer is very much aware of how she is changed, and of how people are changed for better or worse by rich outsiders. She sees how corruption and economic obstacles impede poor communities, and reflects on the world before and after 9/11, when they were in Canada. The book is full of encounters with the most remarkable people of all faiths and none.

The work of a nurse is challenging enough, but when you add a remote location, the stakes are so much higher. Meet fifteen courageous people who prove that the inland runs on nurse power. There's Anna, who is on duty as the fury of Cyclone Yasi tears through inland Queensland; Maureen in outback New South Wales, who faces everything from a snakebite to a helicopter crash; Aggie, who overcomes her demons to help young people in the Kimberley; and Catherine, newly graduated and determined to make a difference in the Gulf Country she and her rodeo-riding husband call home. From some of the most remote places on the earth, these stories bring the outback to life - we witness the harshness and isolation as well as the camaraderie of life in small towns in the middle of nowhere. These intrepid nurses tend to life-threatening emergencies, manage everyday health care and even patch up the local pets. From Bidyadanga to Broken Hill, Mount Isa to Marree, these tales are by turns moving and inspiring, full of gutsy feats and classic outback spirit. Annabelle Brayley collected the stories that appeared in the bestselling Bush Nurses. 'Incredible stories of incredible people.' Blue's Country Magazine
