Description

A dairy farmer's daughter searches for love in a city pub; a grieving widow heals her heart and her community; a cheated wife finds the ultimate revenge. From Australia's favourite rural storyteller comes this highly anticipated collection of short fiction. It features stories full of warmth and heart and humour, and with characters as diverse and colourful as the Australian countryside itself. Laugh and smile your way through this book, which includes the favourites 'The Girl and the Ghost-Grey Mare' and 'The Evolution of Sadie Smith', as well as some new stories never before published in book form. So sit back and enjoy the special 'Treasure' take on the world. 'Treasure writes with true grit, wit and warmth.' Australian Women's Weekly 'At her best, and within the framework of the modern romance tale, Treasure is a storyteller in the tradition of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales- down-to-earth, bawdy, satirical, and entertaining.'

About Rachael Treasure

Tasmanian born Rachael Treasure gets as excited about dung beetle activity in the soil as she does by beautiful writing. By combining her love for the land and the written word, Rachael sparked a publishing boom in 2002 when her first novel Jillaroo woke the world up to contemporary women's stories beyond the city lights.

Rachael lives in Southern rural Tasmania and is a full time mother to two young humans and many eccentric animals including a budgie called Putty Plonkit. She has been dubbed an agricultural activist, farm feminist and literary pioneer and has worked as a rural journalist, radio broadcaster, truffle sniffer dog handler, professional wool classer, stock camp cook, drover, farm manager and working dog trainer.



Her novels following Jillaroo include The Stockman, The Rouseabout, The Cattleman's Daughter, The Farmer's Wife, Cleanskin Cowgirls and short story collections, The Girl and the Ghost-Grey Mare and Fifty Bales of Hay. Non fiction works are Don't Fence Me In - Grassroots Wisdom from a Country Gal and working dog training book, Dog Speak. Her screenplay Albert's Chook Tractor was filmed for SBS Independent TV.
