AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When 23-year-old Pip Newling arrived in the remote West Australian town of Hall's Creek, the locals gave her 24 hours - tops - before she'd be back on the bus to Sydney. But pip stayed - and as she served beers, shared jokes and swapped stories with the townspeople, she discovered a side of Australia most of us never get to see.' - back cover
