About the Author

Author and teacher, Jeannie Gunn was born in 1870 in Carlton, Melbourne. She married Aeneas Gunn in 1901, who had become a partner in Elsey cattle station in the Northern Territory. Encouraged by friends, Jeannie wrote The Little Black Princess (1905) and We of the Never-Never (1908), the second of which detailed actual events which occurred at the station. Gunn writings reflect sympathy and affection for the Aborigines, unlike many other Europeans of her time. During the First World War, she was active in welfare work for soldiers, ex-servicemen and their families, and was subsequently appointed Order of the British Empire in 1939.

Reviews

"We of the Never Never is an Australian classic and deserves to be one; its imagery and wordplay are unlike any Australian text I have read before or since. Its depiction of white settlement in wild Australia, however unfashionable today, makes it an important historical document. But much more than these things, Jeannie Gunn's We of the Never Never is a very old love story, and they just don't write them like this any more." - The Australian
