The true story of an important pioneering woman in Australian history.

Courageous, clever and daring, Drover is one of a kind. Travelling through the heart of the outback, Drover delivers a mob of cattle. Searing heat, dust and flies, hardship and danger: these are just part of the job. But there's no place Drover would rather be. The truly remarkable story of legendary drover Edna Jessop is celebrated through stunning oil illustrations and evocative text.

About the Author

Neridah McMullin grew up surrounded by animals, with a thousand acres to run around in. Her grandfather was a stockman and he bred, trained and raced his own racehorses. As a farm child, she studied science at university and worked as a scientist in Research and Development in the Dairy and Confectionery industry for 16 years. Her dream job took her all over the world. Neridah is the author of seven books for children and loves history and true stories. Her picture book Fabish: the horse that braved a Bushfire was shortlisted for the CBCA Eve Pownall Information ‘Book of the Year’ in 2017. She loves reading until late, sleeping in, walking her dog and meeting other people’s dogs.
