Abstract:

"In the early 1960s, Anne Watts was a newly qualified nurse, eager to use her skills ... Anne had inherited her father's adventurous spirit and at the first opportunity she set sail for Canada to work in the remote stations of the frozen north of the country. She found a placement easily, among the indigenous Inuit people ... Anne later headed for Alice Springs in the Australian outback. She tells what it was like to be a nurse and midwife among a tough cattle-ranching community who lived in close proximity with Australia's aboriginal people ... Forty years later, Anne returned to both countries to see how life has changed in Eskimo Point and Alice Springs, and what has become of its people and landscapes."--Back cover.
