Description - The Stockmen by Rachael Treasure

Rosie Highgrove-Jones grows up hating her double-barrelled name. She dreams of riding out over the wide plains of the family property, working on the land. Instead she's stuck writing the social pages of the local paper.
Then a terrible tragedy sparks a series of shocking revelations for Rosie and her family. As she tries to put her life back together, Rosie throws herself into researching the haunting true story of a 19th century Irish stockman who came to Australia and risked his all for a tiny pup and a wild dream. Is it just coincidence when Rosie meets a sexy Irish stockman of her own? And will Jim help her realise her deepest ambitions - or will he break her heart?
The Stockmen moves effortlessly between the present and the past to reveal a simple yet hard-won truth - that both love and the land are timeless . . .

Author Biography - Rachael Treasure

Tasmanian born Rachael Treasure gets as excited about dung beetle activity in the soil as she does by beautiful writing. By combining her love for the land and the written word, Rachael sparked a publishing boom in 2002 when her first novel Jillaroo woke the world up to contemporary women's stories beyond the city lights. Rachael lives in Southern rural Tasmania and is a full time mother to two young humans and many eccentric animals including a budgie called Putty Plonkit. She has been dubbed an agricultural activist, farm feminist and literary pioneer and has worked as a rural journalist, radio broadcaster, truffle sniffer dog handler, professional wool classer, stock camp cook, drover, farm manager and working dog trainer. Her novels following Jillaroo include The Stockman, The Rouseabout, The Cattleman's Daughter, The Farmer's Wife, Cleanskin Cowgirls and short story collections, The Girl and the Ghost-Grey Mare and Fifty Bales of Hay. Non fiction works are Don't Fence Me In - Grassroots Wisdom from a Country Gal and working dog training book, Dog Speak. Her screenplay Albert's Chook Tractor was filmed for SBS Independent TV.
