    Although the author called this book an autobiography, the content provides an account of Aboriginal existence beyond her own, it crosses generations, moves in and out of matters that are private and matters that are public. The book tells Mrs Davis-Hurst's story, a story of how a woman born in a humpy on Sunrise Station, later known as Purfleet Mission, who became a respected member of the community, to the extent of being honoured with the 'Member of the Order of Australia'. (Source: Foreword by Vicki Greaves, 1996 edition)

    Davis-Hurst first published her reflection on life at Sunrise Station in 1996 specifically for people of Taree and surrounding regions, however, it has been circulated both nationally and internationally with many using her experiences as the basis of research and discussion. This book has become recognised as an important and valuable historical resource for primary schools through to universities. The book has found its way into very important discussions and papers on Aboriginal biographies, Aboriginal women and has been written into PhD theses.
