• A woman at her wits' end: her children grown and gone, tossed aside by the larger-then-life famous husband "like a used kleenex", nothing particular to interest her or shake her out of her depression and lethargy until an idea takes shape: go on "Driveabout", the modern woman's version of a Walkabout, and discover the country in her own way. From dangerous experiences such as swimming in a pond in an underground mine shaft, to hilarious run-ins with locals, to a detour into the "mad ward" of a state hospital to be with a friend, Jane's descriptions of her adventures are not to be missed. A memoir both funny and sad, philosophic without being preachy; Driveabout is for the adventuresome and the timid alike.
