Product description

Product Description

When Maureen Helen reached her fifties, she decided she wanted to do something a little different. Spurred by an adventure in Thailand, she resolved to use her skills to work as a remote area nurse on an isolated Aboriginal settlement in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
Faced with the appalling health problems of the community and a growing sense that she didn’t belong, Maureen battled her own crisis of confidence as well as the harshness and hostility of her surroundings as she struggled to adjust to a culture where she was the outsider.
This finely judged piece of writing offers penetrating insights into the cultural clash between Aboriginal and White Australia, as well as taking a cool look at the narrator’s own moral compass when faced with a frequently demanding and sometimes frightening existence well outside her comfort zone.
Unsentimental, compelling and moving, this book will take you deep into the heart of the Australian outback.

Other Peoples Country was a finalist in the Non Fiction Book Award section of the Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism and also in the Western Australian Premier’s Awards (WA History Section) 2008.
