Unlike most Australians for whom the red centre is a tourist destination, Beverley Kegan has called Central Australia home for more than 50 years. Bev’s story takes us from the small mining town of Emmaville just before WW11, to life in the Alice Springs hospital in the 60s, 70s and 80s as Bev remembers the first time CPR was used in the emergency department, a plane hijacking and the origins of the Alice Springs Bridge Club. Bev discusses why she wrote a book about her life, how she went about publishing and distributing it.
