AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Each and every person has a unique life experience. Here we have a collection of stories of girls and women, who deal with disability in extraordinary ways.

Courage and determination in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds have resulted in lives encompassing value, creativity, success and happiness. Experiences, some spanning many years, are described with laconic humour and Australian understatement.

This is our heritage for others to build on.' -- Back cover.
