“Bette Reddin, a farmer’s daughter and then a farmer’s wife in the Gawler river district, was educated at the Gawler River School, at college in Adelaide, the South Australian School of Fine Art and at the Flinders Park College of Advanced Education where she gained her Diploma of Design and Ceramics.
Her strong creative urge was at first applied in the theatre as an actress, producer and playwright, and later as a drama teacher.  Meanwhile she continued to study and to perform with distinction in the arts of painting, ceramics and, most significantly, as a professional scultptor.
In this, her first book, Bette has given a fascinating account of the early South Australian colonists – drawn from the experiences of her own forebears.  Of special appeal is the fact that the story is told rather uniquely – from the woman’s point of view.”
