From the phenomenal best-selling author, Sara Henderson, comes an entertaining book that will delight readers everywhere.



Sara Henderson's love of animals was firmly established in her early years and continued throughout her life. In Some of My Friends Have Tails, she shares the tales of her many extraordinary relationships with animals. There is Rosa the goanna who swam in the family pool. Pye-Wacket the cat who grew up believing he was a dog. And Sundowner the poddy calf who loved eating the washing, 35 mm film, and sheet music off the piano.



But not all the characters in Sara's life are four-legged. We meet the sixteen-year-old housekeeper who was smuggling drugs, and the Italian gardener who sang opera at dawn. And there are some familiar faces as well: Charlie, Uncle Dick, Max, and Marlee.



These stories range from the funny to the heartbreaking, from Sara's earliest memories to the present day, and take place in many countries. Over the years, Sara Henderson touched the hearts of the thousands of Australians who heard her speak, read her books, and loved her stories.

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.
