Diamond in the Dust

Frauke’s biography is the newest in the genre of non-fi ction books set in Australia’s outback and the overcoming spirit required to master the unforgiving territory. She arrived in the then unknown rural outpost of a town, Kununurra, in 1981. With three children in tow and determined husband who had made the decision this would be their home, land and house sight unseen! To say it was an ardous beginning is an understatement – fi ghting terrible homesickness and obstacles of failed crops in unrelenting land almost broke Frauke’s resolve. But, a wonderful supportive community which is a strong trait in outback towns, helped the Bolten family become established. Tragedy struck just three years later with the death of Frauke’s husband. She had to dig deep and rely on her resilience and strong community as she made decisions for the future. Whilst it was tempting to return to her homeland of Germany, Frauke was planted in the Kimberley region and a new future and career was carved. She truly lives by her personal mantra ‘Never begin to give up and never give up beginning’... If you love stories of the Australian dusty frontiers, hope, loss and resolve then you’ll love this too.
