Walking with camels – the story of Bertha Strehlow (UWAP poetry series)
Award-winning playwright Mary Anne Butler will help Alice Springs poet Leni Shilton launch her extraordinary verse novel about Bertha Strehlow, the young woman who followed her new husband Ted Strehlow into the desert of Central Australia in 1936. Drawn from Bertha’s diaries and years of research, Leni Shilton has woven Bertha’s tale in poetry of stark beauty, threaded through with a deep love of the unforgiving desert.
