"This is a book for all who dream of escaping the suburban rat race for the so-called simple life. Melbourne couple Michael and Susan Cusack were chosen by Australian Geographic from 500 other couples prepared to live for a year in isolation in the wilderness area of Kunmunya, on Australia's north-west Kimberley coast. They undertook to rely on their own initiative to build a home from bush materials and face the many hardships, in the way of Australia's pioneering forebears. It is a fascinating personal account - written with sensitivity and honesty, often moving and at times humorous - of their daily life in the wilderness."
