A vast outback property. An unforgettable season. A family's fight to save their livelihood. A sweeping tale of love and loss, and the highs and lows of life on the land, from an utterly authentic new voice in rural fiction.

Many of Peter and Kelsie Dalton's friends thought they were crazy when they bought Ridgeview Station. But five years on, their hard work, help from Kelsie's parents, and record rainfall have them in high spirits as the summer muster approaches.

Realising they're going to need more help this season, Peter rings around the neighbouring stations to try and find a good worker. After a glowing recommendation, Alexi arrives to give them a hand - and is not at all what they'd expected ... Everything is going smoothly with the muster before disaster strikes and the Dalton's find themselves battling to save their livestock, their property and their lives.

An entertaining yarn set on a vast outback property peopled with colourful and authentic characters, Ridgeview Station is about love, loss and the spirit of the bush.

A book true to Western Australian station life


I really like books with an Australian outback theme and this one did not disappoint. Characters were real and I could easily visualize the location it was set in. Well written. Good story line even though it was sad in parts, but all in all a really good read.



Brilliant outback story


This is a great outback story. I enjoyed the Aussie characters and their interactions with the backpacker Alexi. The humour made me laugh and I cried in parts. It is a well written story that gives a good insight to Australian stations and the outback life.
