All I could think of as my heart thumped in my chest and the rumble of 900 stampeding buffalo rocked my vehicle was 'Struth! Am I in trouble now!' 'Readers who discover an Outback Life will thoroughly enjoy its warmth, its honesty, the robustness and speed of its story telling and the pure entertainment it provides.' Sydney Sunday Sun Herald 'An earthy tale of love, hope, and survival in the wilds of the outback- it zips along at a lively pace, with one cracking yarn after another.' Woman's Day 'I found your book on the Trans-Siberian railway and just finished reading it. Fantastic. You are a great adventurer and a great writer. I dips me lid to you.' Australia's own Dick Smith, adventurer and Philanthropist 'Few people have interesting lives, fewer still are able to write with skill and insight, Mary proves otherwise. An Outback Life is a glimpse of a world that is quickly disappearing.' Sunday Territorian In her late teens Mary fell in love with Joe Groves, horse-breaker, drover and rodeo rider. Then, during their 40 years surviving together in Australia's Outback wilderness, Mary learned to operate helicopters, cattle trucks and anything else it took to assist Joe and to keep their family of six afloat. During this exciting and challenging life they managed an owned an array of cattle stations, driven by the belief that if you want something badly enough, then tenacity perseverance and a sense of humor is essential. In this earthy tale of love, hope, loss and survival, Mary describes the sometimes heart-breaking loneliness, the hard work and the rises and falls in their family's fortunes as they battle to survive in the vast Top End.

About the Author:

About the Author Born in Melbourne, Victoria, Mary was taken with her family to the Northern Territory, Australia’s last frontier, as a 14-year-old. She married a cattleman, raised a family of four and was the key, hands-on person in the business’s she shared with her husband, Joe, learning mostly out of necessity to operate helicopters, cattle trucks and anything else it took to grow their very successful family business. During the process of surviving the many, almost insurmountable, obstacles presented along the way, she has collected an abundance of interesting and unusual stories. By this first time author, Mary’s promise to her mother originally instigated this book as a historical record, but Mary is also keen to have it used as a grass-roots survival handbook for future generations. After 40 years in the outback living a most unusual life among the Aboriginals, she eventually became a natural therapist, running a rural stress retreat in South East Queensland.
