Review

Told with gentle humour and keen observation, not only of the landscape but the people who live there, this book will make readers want to visit Tasmania for themselves, all the while getting to know and like a woman who's unfailing good humour shines through the adventures she encounters.  Elizabeth Kemp - Writers Victoria.

For anyone of any age wishing to experience travelling in Tasmania, this book is a must. Written in an easy-going, humorous style, the reader will discover hidden gems when they travel the Apple Isle with Coral. An inspirational story, told with empathy and unfailing good humour.  Dr. Glenice Whitting - Author and Creatice Writing Tutor.

You have to admire anyone who travels solo. In Coral Waight's 'Edge of the World', you discover the tribulations of going it alone in the wonderland that is Tasmania, whilst feeling you are with the author every step of the way. Coral's marvellous sense of humour makes this a delightful read whether you be 'of an age' or any age. I thoroughly recommend it.  Steve Davies - Author of 'Curtailed Tales' and 'What the?...Cat Dragged In.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Being of a similar age as the author, I could relate to some of her experiences. I found it both interesting and amusing. I would thoroughly recommend it.  Penny Caulfield.

Product Description

On her 60th birthday, Coral Waight set out in her little hatchback, thermos and Esky in the boot, to begin the first of four road trips around the island of Tasmania, across Bass Strait from where she lives in Melbourne, Australia. She planned to the 'nth' degree, but nothing could have prepared her for getting stuck on the side of a mountain, in the dark, with her petrol tank on empty. Nothing prepared her for being on her own in a caravan park at Arthur River in the middle of a violent storm, or forgetting she gets sea-sick and spending a boat cruise around Tasman Island with her head in a bucket.

The wild, untamed west coast contrasted with the ethereal beauty of Great Oyster Bay and the fishing villages of the east. Cheap country pubs offered friendliness and warmth - and the odd hole in a window taped over with cardboard and packing tape - more like the homes of friends or relatives than hotels. The giant ferns and the great trees of the rainforests nurtured and replenished her spirit, and the history, white and indigenous, not too far in the past, filtered through everything.

"Told with gentle humour and keen observation. this book will make readers want to visit Tasmania for themselves, all the while getting to know and like a woman whose unfailing good humour shines through the adventures she encounters." Elizabeth Kemp-Writers Victoria.

"An inspirational story, told with empathy and unfailing good humour." Dr. Glenice Whitting - Author and Tutor of Creative Writing.
