Toni Tapp Coutts Hachette

Sequel to A Sunburnt Childhood, now set in the Northern Territory’s Gulf country later in her married life, Toni’s heart warming memoir continues to be full of adventure, or just as often, misadventure! Running a cattle station with her husband and raising three children in a remote and frequently isolated situation involved facing horrendous challenges head on, travelling vast distances to health services and ultimately her move into the relative ‘metropolis’ of Katherine where she still lives. Toni is an elected member of the Katherine Town Council and works tirelessly, particularly interested in the causes of isolated womens’ issues and the social challenges endemic to the outback region.
