'Mrs. White's No Roads Go By and Beyond The Western Rivers have become classics of the Australian Outback.  In From That Day To This she returns to her old bush home at Wonnaminta, and recalls much of her life in the Inland, contrasting conditions in the Outback today with life as she knew it there before the days of radios, planes, and refrigerators.  She talks of many things - from the shearers' sprees, camels, and how to cook emu eggs, to bush cricket and the Flying Doctor Service - and shares with the reader her experiences in the worst floods the arid Inland has ever known.'
