Come with me
Into this fascinating world
Victoria Capper has lived in outback Australia for most of her life. People asked her what it is like, so she started creating stories about the joys and trials of living in outback Australia.
She wanted to share with other people an understanding of the world she knows so well through her memorable characters, hard-working country people, their hardships and their fullness of heart. Her stories take readers into the bush, with its ever-changing moods that stimulate the senses; the tiny delights of the environment brought to life through quick precise strokes.
She is renowned because she writes it as it is – and she tells a great yarn into the bargain.

Victoria Capper genuinely gives an insight into the life on a typical Australia Outback property. The settings are remarkably realistic. I would recommend her books to anyone who wants a thoroughly enjoyable read and at the same time get a sense of the Aussie bush.
Well done Victoria Capper for writing so sensitively of outback life. Her books are easy to read and the characters so true to life. While the hurdles they encounter are undeniable, the beautiful setting and intriguing stories make her books well worth reading. They give a picture of how country people cope and somehow manage to survive with the help of their communities though there are people who just were unable to carry on. Her books tell it all.

How refreshing to read any words committed to paper by Victoria. Her extensive background knowledge of life in western Queensland is gleaned from living the life herself for over fifty years on the property established by her forebears in 1906. Droughts, floods, fires, good times and bad are all told from first hand experience. This deep understanding of the life led by all living in Western Queensland certainly makes for the development of engaging plots and yarns in Victoria’s novels.
Victoria Capper’s books are a most enjoyable read. She writes many layered stories with much to enthral readers about outback life. In one sense potted history of life on the land over a number of generations and yet a tight and gripping story in which love is never far away.
Beautiful stories that uplift the spirit
