Book Description

With 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.
