All the strength you need to achieve anything is within you. Don't wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel, stride down there ... and light the bloody thing yourself!



After being named the Bulletin / Qantas Businesswoman of the Year in 1991, and following the phenomenal success of From Strength to Strength, Sara Henderson's life changed forever. Australians took her into their hearts and she became an overnight celebrity. But beyond the glory, life continued to deal Sara its heavy blows.



In 1992, she lost a court case that left Bullo River, the million acre outback station she had struggled so hard to save, under threat. Then her daughter Marlee was diagnosed with cancer and Sara found herself close to breaking point.



But when letters, faxes and phone calls from people all over Australia started arriving, they were filled with such compassion that Sara was inspired to carry on.



In her best-selling sequel The Strength In Us All, Sara updates us on life at Bullo and tells more of the colourful stories about Charlie, Uncle Dick, the girls and their animals, and all the other unforgettable characters that have played a part in her remarkable life.

Author Information

Sara Jane Henderson (15 September 1936 – 29 April 2005) was an Australian pastoralist and author. She was named Businesswoman of the Year in 1991 for managing the Bullo River cattle station, 360 kilometres south-west of Darwin in the Northern Territory. In 1993 she published her autobiography From Strength to Strength which focused on her family's efforts to manage Bullo River after her husband died in 1985. She became a spokesperson for BreastScreen Australia and urged women over 50 to have regular mammograms to discover breast cancer. Ironically, in 2000 she discovered that she herself had breast cancer. The tumour was removed, but her cancer recurred and she died at a hospital in Caloundra, Queensland on 29 April 2005.
