this is a very rare book, Red Catherine Johns is a Romani Gypsy woman who lives on 168 acres in in the Mallee of South Australia with 100 others - but she is the only human. Animals are in Red's bones, blood, soul and heart, the "glue that holds the magic together." Red's first book, a Resilient Spirit tells the story of her unusual life with joy, humor and disarming candor. Pitched between parent and grandparent, suburb and bush, house and sheep station, she was a gutsy little girl who learned to wrestle what joy she could from childhood and whose best friends were dogs and horses; a teenage misfit - teachers branded her "uncontrollable" - she was sent to jillaroo on a remote country station; a reluctant shop assistant she escaped each afternoon to work as a strapper on the local racetrack. Catherine is a former art historian and curator for the London museum.
