Traversing great distances in a campervan, Eleanor Hogan reflects on the lives and work of the indefatigable women, Daisy Bates and Ernestine Hill. From a contemporary perspective, their work seems quaint and sentimental, their outlook and preoccupations dated, paternalistic, and even racist. Yet Bates and Hill took a genuine interest in Aboriginal people and their cultures long before they were considered worthy of the Australian mainstream's attention. With sensitivity and insight, Hogan wonders what their legacies as fearless female outliers might be.
