Armed with a camera and metal detector he responds to the call again. This book, a selection of prize winning poetry, supplies another glimpse in the life of a lone miner. Whether searching for gold nuggets or Opals during the daylight, at nights the poet wrote of life as lived over forty years in isolation. The unknown graves, the vast plains, the lonely campfires yet, contentment under wide open starry skies. It proved a peaceful, solitary life with the welcomed visits by goannas and an intriguing dingo for company.Within these eighty pages of this second book of Australian Bush Poetry there is beauty, wonder, history and love. Love for the land within the rhymes shared equally with beauty in full page photographic views of Australia's outback. Over high craggy peaks, the breakaways and on to the wide open red plains, he searches to find the gold.With rhythm and rhyme he relates his passion as this miner answers the call of the outback.

"As a young girl Janet read about the work of Rev John Flynn and had a dream to become one of John Flynn's Australian Inland Mission nurses. This dream was realised when Janet was appointed to Birdsville Hospital in 1976 ... . Following her work with AIM, Janet worked around outback Queensland before meeting her farmer and settling on the family farm. Many difficulties followed with drought, flood, insect plagues and family unrest resulting in losing the farm. Janet gathered her devestated husband and three small children and headed for the outback again. Janet was appointed Sister in Charge of Frontier Services Hospital at an outback mining town called The Monument. Here the family expanded to six with the birth of another son. Life was not meant to be easy as the family suffered another home loss after the mine was shut down and they were retrenched. This led the family back to the Northern Territory where they still reside. Janet took her family to Kakaringi, Barunga and Ngukurr where they spent 15 years learning about Aboriginal culture and caring for everyone for the whole spectrum of life. Janet is now manager of the Nauiyu Health Centre near Daly River. ... In 2005 Janet was awarded N.T. Regional Local Hero in the Australian of the Year Awards, N.T. Barnardos Mother of the Year and Remote Nurse of the Year. Her work is recorded in 'Who's who of Australian women' and 'Who's who of women of the world' along with 1000 intellectuals of the world."--Back cover.

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.

The stakes are high for the smart and spirited vets charged with caring for Australia's rural livestock, wildlife and beloved family pets. Those who call the outback home often depend on animals for their wellbeing – and, in many cases, their livelihood. In far south-west Queensland, Rachel Wilson and Will Nason vet all the horses at the famous Birdsville Races; in the Victorian High Country, Dave Hall's own life-threatening car accident fired his ambition to make a difference; and in her mixed practice in north-west New South Wales, lone vet Mary-Jane Stutsel has had seven days off-call in twenty years. Among others, we also meet Jan Allen, who works with camp dogs in remote Indigenous communities in the Top End, and adventurous Rick Fenny in the vast Pilbara, who cared for the region's beloved nomad kelpie, Red Dog. Outback Vets is a walk on Australia's wild side, from the glistening coast to the dusty desert. Get to know these hard-working animal lovers as they ride, drive and fly across some of the most remote regions of Australia, rescuing and treating creatures great and small.
