Tells the story of two people who took the opportunity to travel the highways and byways of Eastern Australia for several years, living as closely as possible in this modern age to the nomadic Gypsy lifestyle, while doing so bringing the rich cultural heritage of the landless Romani to a wide variety of non-Romani people. Kate, the Gypsy Storyteller, and her shadow, John returned to the road after years of living in towns and cities. They travelled in a motorised version of the old style Vardo, towing a small version of the popular Bowtop caravan. Here is a story of joy and heartache; of elation and despair; of new friends and new enemies; of discrimination and acceptance; from the bitter winter winds of South Australia to the tropical climate of North Queensland. An eye-opening account of one woman's adventurous survival experiences in the multicultural society of modern Australia.
