Down the Dirt Roads (31 October 2016)
‘For me, being in a paddock means anything is possible . . .’
Country girl and bestselling novelist Rachael Treasure had worked hard to build a long-dreamed-of lifestyle on her own patch of dirt in Tasmania’s rugged and beautiful wilderness. But through the breakdown of her marriage, Rachael lost her family farm and, in her words, lost her way in life.
Down the Dirt Roads is a heartfelt and moving memoir of the life of a single mother displaced from her home and her journey of self-discovery, hope and more. Ground-breaking and powerful, Rachael explores the impact we have on the land, presenting a practical insight into healthy food, environmental sustenance, and quite simply, a fresh way of doing things.
