Inspiring true-life stories of women who've grown up connected with the country or who've fallen in love with it or with the men working it. Women who've struggled through bushfires, floods, poverty, discrimination and accidents to come out smiling at the other end. Stories of hardship, triumph, resilience and love.

Anne Crawford has woven together the extraordinary true stories of nine inspiring women from remote parts of Australia - whether that be the bush, the mountains or the outback. The women featured range from hard-bitten bush women to those who've left the city for a new challenge. Together they share their stories of lives forged in often inhospitable conditions, the hardships imposed by isolation and the personal trials they endure to live there.

Women of Spirit is a wonderful snapshot of strong women living quiet but important lives in Australia today.
