I once interviewed pioneer woman aviator Nancy Bird. She’d been recruited by Rev Stanley Drummond for his Far West Children’s Scheme to fly nurses out of Bourke to remote villages further West in the 1930’s. She spoke in glowing terms about the wives and mothers who raised families on stations out there. ‘The heroism of some of the outback women was inspirational. Their courage was sustained year after year in terrible conditions’.
