The Road From Coorain

The Road From Coorain


The Road From Coorain is the beautifully written narrative of Jill Ker Conway's journey from girlhood on an isolated sheep-farm in the grasslands of Australia to her departure for America (and eventually the presidency of Smith College).


  • A small masterpiece of scene, memory and very stylish English. I've been several times to Australia; this book was the most rewarding of all
    John Kenneth Galbraith
