In 1973, Valerie Browning, a young Sydney nurse, volunteered to go to Ethiopia to help the victims of a devastating famine. She had little conception of Africa or Africans, and yet the continent and its people would become the guiding force of her life.

In one of the most inhospitable landscapes on earth, Valerie has waged an incredible struggle, bringing health and education to a people who would otherwise have nothing. Valerie's story is both an astonishing adventure and a testament to how determination and passion can achieve extraordinary things.
