'This book will stand as a tribute to the decreasing population of people who are prepared to face nature to survive - the farmers of South Australia. Rex Brereton's descriptive photographs show farmers and their families at work and leisure, while the accompanying text tells the tale of their lives. The Life they choose has its ups and downs. Heat, cold, drought and too much rain are elements over which the farmer has no control; he also has to contend with rising costs and the unforeseeable vagaries of the Australian and world markets. A farmer's income is irregular and he must constantly adjust to this.'
