A compelling investigation into the early life of Dame Mary Gilmore and her two adventurous years in South America.

In a remarkable blend of biography and travel writing, Anne Whitehead follows in the footsteps of the young Australian poet Mary Gilmore, from the former socialist colonies of Paraguay to the sheep estancias of southern Argentina and brings to life Mary’s testing time in one of the harshest places on earth. A coming of age and a love story.

First published in 2003, Bluestocking in Patagonia was shortlisted for the Magarey National Biography Award and is the companion book to Anne Whitehead’s award-winning Paradise Mislaid, also part of the Untapped collection.

Industry Reviews

‘This splendid and fascinating book is brilliantly balanced as part memoir, part well-researched recreation of the experience of the young Mary Gilmore as inamorata of Henry Lawson, as radical, wife, Paraguayan and Patagonian settler, and as abidingly Australian soul.’ – Thomas Keneally

‘I shall take away [for Summer reading] Bluestocking in Patagonia, by Anne Whitehead, the story of Mary Gilmore, poet, pioneer, utopian and sheep shearer’s wife, whose face is on the Australian $10 note. I need to know how it got there.’ – Hilary Mantel, Arts Telegraph UK
