Nothing Prepared Me!/Quilty, Edna E/Paper/0957760809/S011-B
Edna Eckford Quilty
Edna Eckford Quilty's autobiography, Nothing Prepared Me!, provides a unique view of our recent past, a past quickly disappearing under the avalanche that is called the 'Age of Technology'.
During her 31 years on Lansdowne, a million acre cattle station in the rugged Kimberley Ranges of Western Australia, Mrs Quilty traces the development of the Cattle Industry in Australia's 'Top End'; from traditional mustering and droving to the use of helicopters and road trains.
The story is interwoven with domestic and social scenes now mostly a part of history. Making no concessions to modern 'political correctness', it is told in the language of the time, providing a true picture of life as it was, not how we would have liked it to be.
It is not only a tale of the courage, loneliness and strength of women in a 'man's world', it is also the history of a great love.
