Hardship experienced today in establishing and maintaining rural viability in the face of difficult climatic and economic conditions in rural and remote areas of Australia suggests that the experiences of graduate rural women might have significant bearing on future directions in that context. The stages of becoming and being graduate rural women in professional practice and in everyday life evidence the research participants'introspective appreciation of the impact and import of their university education in the development and application of their professional skills. Six core concepts emerging from the data contribute to the findings of the study.

My early, happy childhood in "the bush" of New South Wales, Australia,where my parents instilled in me a love of learning, preceded formal education in Sydney and a very full life of teaching, marriage, children and university studies. In addition, many years were spent in business, prompting achievement of accountancy qualifications combined with the teaching of law subjects to tertiary students. With a Bachelor of Education, a Masters Honours in Education and a Doctorate of Philosophy, my major interests continue along the path of academic expression combined with business and travel.
