About

"Leni Shilton offers us a woman's exploration of loss and survival in the unforgiving and beautiful landscape of central Australia. Bertha Strehlow, overshadowed by her anthropologist husband's achievements, was a woman of integrity and a brilliant observer and connector of people in settings such as the Great Sandy Desert over many years of endurance. In this volume, Leni Shilton restores to her a voice. Walking with Camels is charged with the lovely strangeness of a re-imagined perspective: Bertha Strelhow exists here in a lyrical history that is inner, poetic, singular and deeply mysterious and we are reminded of the moving gravity of so many untold stories." - Gail Jones
