"First published in 1908, We of the Never-Never has long been regarded as a classic of Australian literature.
Newly married, Jeannie Gunn accompanies her husband to 'The Elsey', the huge cattle station in the Northern Territory, several hundred miles from the nearest town.
She is one of the few white women in the area and her presence is at first resented by the stock-men until her warmth and spirit win their affection and respect.
This is one of the few autobiographies written by a woman to chronicle the life of the pioneers of the outback.  In the style of the bush storyteller, Mrs Gunn conveys with moving simplicity the beauty and cruelty of the land, and the isolation and loneliness, comradeship and kindness, of the early settlers."
