Publisher's Summary

Sue Williams has delivered us Women of the Outback and Outback Spirit, stories she gathered from the people of the bush. Ever curious, this time Sue puts herself in the firing line, seeking to find the essence of the outback experience - perfect for all us armchair travellers.
She travelled the width and length of Australia by bus, train, car, campervan, Troopy, horse, goat, foot, and plane. She helped pregnancy-test cattle at a remote property in the far north of South Australia, swallowed countless flies, and ran through muddy dams carrying a pretend-sheep on her shoulders in an outback Ironwoman challenge. She saw the country in drought, in flood, between swarms of locusts and a mice plague, mixing with old drovers, new backpackers, overseas tourists, new settlers and old-timers.
Sue knows how to tell a good story - and confirms once and for all that it’s a weird place out there.

Disappointing - terribly slow and bad narration

What disappointed you about Welcome to the Outback?

The extremely slow story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sue Williams again?


How could the performance have been better?

Unfortunately the narrator (also the author) speaks way too quickly and also seems to sound a bit bored and keen to rush through.
