      Miles Franklin was born and reared on farms in remote parts of New South Wales. These early experiences of a family struggling against an inhospitable land served as the basis for her first and best-known novel, My Brilliant Career (). 'To meet Miles Franklin was as invigorating as to ride on a spring morning across the Monaro plains she so dearly loved,' wrote Henrietta Drake-Brockman. Author, union organiser, WWI volunteer, women's rights agitator, nationalist, Miles Franklin worked, wrote and talked for many causes, none more passionately than Australian literature.
