East of AliceEast of Alice by Annie Seaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Totally agree with the review of Phrynne and nothing I wish to add …The two time frames past and history plus today are well combined, the outback life of the OZ pioneers is vividly outlined, and the story is well written, so good I can imagine a good film version like the story of the Brissie Camel Lady! Will check out more from the author! Great and easy vacation reading and of course very good for tourists visiting the Outback around Alice …like Ruby Gap.
Will get there one day myself for sure!
The author is very successful and travels a lot like myself! Will follow her now and read more Country Stories. She is the Australian Charlotte Link (German Author).

My Review East Of Alice published on GoodReads

East Of Alice

Autorin: Annie Seaton

The Early Settlers from Britain and more …

Setting is The Ruby Gap National Park.

(will be updated soon …) Read my Review via GoodReads.

Ruby Gap is a remote wilderness area located near Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is known for its rugged beauty and unique geology, as well as its rich Indigenous history and cultural significance.

The Ruby Gap area is characterized by steep sandstone cliffs, deep gorges, and rocky outcrops. The area is home to a diverse range of plants and animals, including the red kangaroo, rock wallaby, and various bird species. The area also has several permanent waterholes, which are important for wildlife and for the Indigenous people who have lived in the area for thousands of years.

Ruby Gap is part of the West MacDonnell Ranges, which is a chain of mountains that runs west of Alice Springs. The ranges are sacred to the Arrernte people, who have lived in the area for thousands of years. The area has many significant cultural sites, including rock art galleries, ceremonial sites, and sacred places.

Ruby Gap is a popular spot for hiking and camping, but it is also a remote wilderness area that is not easily accessible. Visitors to the area should be well-prepared, as there are no facilities or services in the area and it can be challenging to navigate. Permits are required to access the Ruby Gap area, and visitors should be aware of the cultural and environmental sensitivities of the area.
