Product description

Marie Mahood lived and worked on Mongrel Downs cattle station in the Tanami Desert with her family in the 1960s. Time/Life Magazine featured Mongrel Downs as the world's most remote cattle station. Her best-selling life story, Icing on the Damper, has its roots in this coutry. She also wrote Legends of the Outback and Still Bleating about the Bush.

The Last Dry Creek is the third book in her Serendipity trilogy. It is the sequel to A Bunch of Strays and Crocodile Dreaming. Set in the Northern Territory of the 1970s, it is a fictional saga which borrows strongly from factual events and might well be considered a social comment on Territory history of the time.

Book condition is very good. Writing in pen on front page otherwise pages are clean and unmarked.
