Would love to purchase...
2 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie well done and quite enjoyable. I have always had a strong attraction to the Australians and some of the brutal condition's they must overcome to survive. Linda Evans was commendable in her portrayal of a single parent in a new country trying to make a go of it. The camel racing was a nice touch that I have never seen before. I highly recommend the movie, one that the whole family with all age children can watch. I felt it was a accurate depiction of some of the struggles people, especially ranchers, work to overcome. If it is ever released on DVD or shown on TV again I would be first in line to get it. My VHS copy is showing its age.. Maybe my newer better digital viewing habits have more to do with that though..lol...
