Ep: 74 Michelle Scott Tucker – Elizabeth Macarthur, a life at the edge of the world.

In 1788 a young gentle woman raised in the vicarage of an English village married a handsome, haughty and penniless army officer. In any Jane Austen novel that would be the end of the story, but for the real-life woman who would play an integral part in establishing Australia’s wool industry it was just the beginning. A fascinating, faithful portrait of a remarkable woman and the young, volatile colony she helped to build.
