Pilgrimage by Mary Durack
Book DescriptionWith vivid and passionate descriptions of her beloved outback, Mary Durack brings alive the spirit of our country and those who have shaped it. Pilgrimage is an unforgettable journey through the vibrant landscape and life of Mary Durack, from her early writings in the 1930s through to the mid-1980s.

Pilgrimage is an enduring record of a way of life that is fast disappearing and a testament to an exceptional writer. In the early 90s, before her death, Mary started
