Author Biography - Angela Goode

Angela Goode lives on a farm near Naracoorte, South Australia, where cattle graze and bush stone curlews call. She has spent her writing life bringing the images and issues of rural Australia to a wider audience in books, newspaper columns and on radio. Between 1981 and 2008 her acclaimed column in the Advertiser in Adelaide involved its urban readership in the joys and mysteries of farm life. The many editions of GREAT WORKING DOG STORIES and GREAT WORKING HORSE STORIES, plus FOR THE LOVE OF THE LAND Angela's memoir THROUGH THE FARM GATE, celebrate working lives beyond the cities - where animals and humans are expected to pull their weight.
