About the author (2013)

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.
