Motherland gives a voice to a nation of country women by sharing their real, raw and unbelievable stories of rural motherhood. Based on the podcast, Motherland brings together the incredible stories of 14 rural mothers who offer powerful and unfiltered insight into the tragedies and triumphs that have shaped their lives on the land, and how through it all, they've thrived through their most precious yet most challenging role of all, motherhood. Motherland's impact has since grown far greater than she ever imagined, and has energised rural women across the country, providing support and inspiration as they navigate the unique challenges that come with raising kids on the land. The show has since grown into a powerful online community of rural mothers, and now for the first time, Motherland cements some of their journeys in writing. Behind the scenes of our farms and outback stations are incredible women whose stories reveal strength, vision and love, no matter the challenges they've overcome. Stephanie Trethewey's Motherland gives a voice to the extraordinary lives of fourteen rural mothers across states, territories, cultures and generations. Each offers an unfiltered insight into the tragedies and triumphs that have shaped their lives on the land, motherhood being the most challenging role of all.
