Product description

Product Description

'For me, being in a paddock means anything is possible . . .'

Country girl and bestselling novelist Rachael Treasure had worked hard to build a long-dreamed-of lifestyle on her own patch of dirt in Tasmania's rugged and beautiful wilderness. But through the breakdown of her marriage, Rachael lost her family farm and, in her words, lost her way in life.

Discovering an all-new compass to live by, she took her two kids and her dogs and left the beaten path. Intensive farming, men on the land and women in the home - everywhere Rachael looked she saw ongoing harm to the soil and the foodchain. By going down the dirt roads and getting back to grassroots, she discovered another set of stories about country life in Australia, and a different way to live on the land. From her rebel granny to pioneering farmers and passionate animal handlers, Rachael became inspired by fresh ways to do things.

Down the Dirt Roads starts as a heartfelt and moving insight into the life of a single mother displaced from her home, and becomes a groundbreaking and powerful book about healing, health and hope. Nourishing and sustaining, it presents a practical and positive vision of what life on our land could become.

This story tells the true story of the life issues, family turmoil and the way forward for us to try. Rachael is a real person who gives us the joy and hardships. I have had the chance to also work with the Carlos in her story and can really relate to all she spoke of. We are women, let us stand together and get the land moving again in a positive manner. Another fantastic read for all Rachael Treasure fans. Thank you Rachael!

Having been an avid reader of Rachael's for years, I pre-ordered this book and couldn't wait for it to arrive on my Kindle. What a disappointment! I expected her usual work of fiction - not an auto-biography which jumped around constantly and was really hard to follow. I found it boring and skipped pages at a time which is something I never do. The basis of a good book was there, telling her own story but the jumping around of the storyline had me confused - and that was before I started skipping pages! I feel like a traitor not liking one of Rachael'a books but it really left me feeling disappointed.
