In this uniquely Australian anthology of short stories we traverse the country known by Australians as the 'wide brown land'. You will be introduced to a 'Bachelors & Spinsters' Ball, the wonderful memories of yesteryear's Cracker Nights, Aussie nicknames, the dangers of our wildlife, all written by gifted sassy women - women who have learned to live in a harsh, unforgiving land with irreverent humour, optimism and grace.

They skilfully explore life with poignancy, wry humour and an innate flair for suspense, delivering a lively read that will not disappoint readers. This cunning combination creates an entertaining, compelling journey for readers, as the authors embrace life in all it's chaos, beauty and hilarity.
