Autobiography of Cecil and Lorna Teece. It is the true story of a modern family in a venture carried out in the same way and tradition as that of the pioneers. Lorna was the voice on the air waves at the Cloncurry Flying Doctor Base, 600 miles away, and it was termed "The Voice from the Wilderness". They lived in a bark hut with packhorses to bring in supplies once in three months. The Teece family pioneered a million acres in one of the wildest corners in Northern Australia. There are long droving trips, great bushmen and horsemen: hard rides after wild cattle, the loyalty of the Aborigines, almost daily danger, and minerals discovered that could be among the richest finds in Australia. The experiences of this veteran bushman, horseman and cattleman encompass all of Western Queensland, the Top End of the Northern Territory and Cape York Peninsula. This book will interest anyone who wants to learn about a life that is unknown to most people. ISBN: 095989604X. Our Book No: 30675. $40 AUD.
