Summary This week on Talking Heads, Peter Thompson is joined by an author who describes her writing career as "having spanned 17 years, 48 wombats, 132 books, 23 languages, 3721 bush rats, over 50 awards in Australia and overseas, six possibly insane lyrebirds, assorted Burke's Backyard's segments, radio shows, newspaper and magazine columns, theories of pest and weed ecology and 27 shredded back doormats". Jackie French fled to the bush early in her life to get away from the human race. A difficult childhood and an ugly incident during her days at university convinced French to look for a different kind of life. In the Araluen Valley outside Canberra, she discovered a love of wildlife, a passion for eco-friendly gardening, a close-knit, quirky and supportive community, and true love with Bryan. Hear about French's journey from dropout to acclaimed organic gardener and internationally best-selling children's author.
