These people are very different, but they have much in common. They’re the salt of the outback, but they’re not from long ago and far away. You can rub shoulders with them here and now. They’re our outback legends.

Immerse yourself in these armchair travels and heart-warming life stories as Evan McHugh, bestselling author of Outback Heroes and Outback Pioneers, catches up with some of the most remarkable and inspiring characters our country has to offer.

Meet icons such as boxing impresario Fred Brophy, who turned ‘You can’t’ into ‘I will’, to Shannon Warnest, world champion shearer. Discover unsung heroes such as ‘mother of the Barkly’ Bernadette Burke, convenor of one of the world’s biggest women’s networks, and nurse June Andrew, who has dedicated a lifetime to running a remote health service, often single-handedly. You may not have heard of some of these people but you’ll be enriched by meeting them now.

Outback Legends is a unique and colourful celebration of Aussie characters who’ve earned themselves a reputation for their achievements and contributions in the most far-flung and challenging corners of our country. None of the people in this book has sought fame but every one of them deserves it.
