This true story, the first and only one to have been published, is a frank and revealing account of exceptionally demanding as well as wonderfully rewarding experiences establishing an Aboriginal Art and Craft centre on Elcho Island—situated in the Arafura Sea, off Arnhem Land.

Set to a backdrop of corruption, relationships and harassment but most significantly the ultimate joy of success and the extraordinary experience of working with the Aboriginal artists.

Taken from her hand-written journal, the narrative portrays many cross cultural challenges as well as the personal struggles of a single white woman trying to survive in a remote Aboriginal community.
