Book about the Pilbara in WA.

I have just finished reading Lonely for my Land by Tish Lees.  I met Tish at an Author's Fair in Maroochydore, Queensland, last year, and purchased her book for my friend Bev, who is a registered nurse working in WA, and who lived and worked at Karratha.  She read it with enthusiasm, and later when I visited her in WA in January, she loaned it to me to read.

She certainly had an extra ordinary life living in the Pilbara at a time when it was clearly quite primitive, and she tells wonderful stories about her life there.  I recommend it, especially as a gift for someone who lives in WA, or knows that region.
