Product description


"A small masterpiece of scene, memory and very stylish English. I've been several times to Australia; this book was the most rewarding of all" (John Kenneth Galbraith)

"The Road from Coorain is the work of a writer who relentlessly tugs at the cultural fences around her until they collapse, leaving her solitary under an immense Australian sky, enlarged to herself at least" (New York Times Book Review)

"This book, an extraordinarily gripping and inspiring work, will take place as one of the few heroic stories of girlhood" (Carolyn Heilbrun)

"Immensely readable, elegant and well-crafted" (Sydney Morning Herald)

Book Description

The inspiring and much loved memoir which follows Jill Ker Conway’s early years from her childhood in the Australian outback, to her time in Sydney and on to America as a young woman
