In September Literary Lunch will be reading True North: The Story of Mary and Elizabeth Durack by Brenda Niall. 

Growing up in suburban Perth in the 1920s, the two Durack girls were fascinated by tales of the pioneering past of their father and grandfather overlanding from Queensland in the 1880s and setting up vast cattle stations in the north.  A year spent together on one of the stations ignited a lifelong love of the Kimberley, along with a growing unease about the situation of the Aboriginal people employed there. With unprecedented access to family letters, unpublished memoirs, diaries and papers, Brenda Niall gets to the heart of a uniquely Australian story.
