“This is a hitherto untold chapter of Australian pioneering history – the story of the Australian Inland Mission Nursing Service at Innamincka, a small mission station in the northeast corner of South Australia, in the years before the arm of Flynn’s Flying Doctors could reach out into the lonely heart of Australia.  Through Sister Burchill tells of her personal experiences during her service at the Mission Hospital, Innamincka is also the story of her nursing companion Ina Currey, and, in fact, of any one of the gallant band of some four hundred women – A.I.M Sisters – who helped in a lifetime to alter completely the way of life in the Inland.  Here is a book which, with its historical reminiscences, its many delightful incidents, and its message of faith and service, cannot fail to appeal.”
