Diamonds and Dust

Author(s): Sheryl McCorry

Biography

Sheryl McCorry grew up in Arnhem Land carrying crocodiles to school for show and tell. When she was 18, Broome beckoned, and it was there that - only hours after being railroaded into marriage by a fast-talking Yank - she locked eyes with Bob McCorry, a drover and buffalo shooter. When her marriage ended after only a few months, they began a romance that would last a lifetime and take them to the Kimberley's harshest frontiers. As the only woman in a team of stockmen, Sheryl soon learned how to run rogue bulls and to outsmart the neighbours in the toughest game of all - mustering cattle. The playing field was a million acres of unfenced, unmarked boundaries. But Sheryl soon saw that to survive in the outback a woman needed goals. Hers was to become the first woman in the Kimberley to run two million-acre cattle stations. But it was to come at an unimaginable cost.Inspiring and unforgettable, Diamonds & Dust is a classic story of a woman finding her destiny in the furthest reaches of the outback.
