The dust, the flies, the dingoes are the only company, sometimes for weeks, the occasional crackle of a voice over a wireless radio from far-flung places - this was the world of Val Oldfield for 10 years when living on Australia's infamous Birdsville Track. ... Val Oldfield was flung into this world as a naïve newly-wed from an Adelaide seaside suburb in post-war boom years of Australia. No beating about the bush traces her life from childhoold years, when she wriggled her little toes in the sand at Semaphore Beach, to her teenage years as a modern young in 1950's miss about town, to the alien environment of The Track and to Val's years beyond.
