The compelling true account of 18-year-old nurse Terry Augustus and John Underwood, a young cattleman she found flat on his back in Ward 3 of St Vincents Hospital, nursing a serious spinal injury sustained while mustering cattle. John was itching to get home to his family's cattle station in the Northern territory. He promised Terry he'd write.After five long years of corresponding, John and Terry married and moved to the new home - a tent and a newly drilled bore 'in the middle of nowhere'. Their love for each other was only matched by their love for this 'last frontier' in the heart of the Territory. Modern-day pioneers, they built their cattle station, Riveren, from scratch and raised and educated a new generation of Underwoods there, on the headwaters of the Victoria River, 600 kilometres south-west of Katherine. Times were tough and there was heartbreak, danger and struggle, but the power of love and the strength of family ties helped them overcome every obstacle.This is a story of beating the odds, told with warmth and a genuine knowledge of Outback Australia. This 1999 Bantam,Australia Paperback is in Good condition.
