Summary

Martha Cox married selector David Cox, and lived and worked with him on their property in the Condobolin (western) district of New South Wales. Under harsh and isolated conditions, she cooked for workers, carried out household chores and farm work, and made her own butter, cheese, jam and soap. Toward the end of her life, she composed a detailed journal of her days on the land.
