Liz Harfull shares fascinating true stories of rural Australian women in her new book A Farming Life: Tales of resilience from inspiring rural women.
Showcasing the passion, tenacity and resilience needed to make a life on the land, Harfull shares uplifting stories of women from six rural families as their resilience is tested by personal loss, illness, fractured relationships, natural disasters and the challenges that come with working in a traditionally male-dominated world.
The women are all hands-on farmers - most responsible for managing their own farms.
Their defiance, tenacity and genuine humility shine through, as does their hope for the next generation of young women lining up to follow in their footsteps.
