“Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives brings together stories of remarkable men and women form across rural Australia.  In these portraits we meet down-to-earth, dynamic people who are taking extraordinary steps to bring about positive change.  These people who are shaping our national heritage by quietly tackling some of eh big issues: reconciliation, out treatment of the natural environment, the city/country divide.  They include Jack Little, former ‘ringer’ turned Aboriginal health worker; Jill Jordan, whose energy and optimism have transformed a country town; John Thompson whose innovative farming methods have successfully challenged traditional agriculture; Margaret Carnegie-Smith, who helped to combat leprosy in the Top End; and many others.”
