About This Item

New York: Pantheon Books, 1994. A hauntingly beautiful biographic account of Daisy Bates. In 1913 at the age of fifty-four Daisy Bates went to live in the desert of South Australia for nearly thirty years. It is a stunning portrait of one of the world's most eccentric, lonely and worthwhile women. Daisy Bates resembles Isak Dinesen or Dianne Fossey.... she gave up everything to live with the Aborigines for she loved their wilderness and their land. Daisy Bates was a notorious liar and the author treats this flaw in a loving way. Small pale-colour stain to ffep. A bright book in a bright price-clipped dust jacket.. ISBN: 0-679-42001-0. First Edition, First Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. Women Australia Biography + Australia Biography + Australian Aborigines + Aborigines Social Life and Customs + Australian Aborigines Social Conditions + Daisy Bates 1861-1951.
