A Diamond in the Dust : Turning outback dust into a diamond empire Other events...
A tale of love and loss, hardship and heartache, but ultimately the inspiring story of how a young girl from Germany overcame tragedy to pioneer a diamond empire in one of the most unforgiving terrains on earth. Hear first-hand the powerful true story of how one woman turned outback dust into a diamond empire. Within minutes of landing in Kununurra, Frauke Bolten had made up her mind to get on a plane back home to Germany. It was 1981 and the dusty frontier town was no place for a woman. However, Frauke stayed, determined to help her husband carve out a new life farming. Tragedy struck just three years later when Friedrich took his life and she was left to raise their family alone. Price includes two-course breakfast and presentation by Frauke Bolten-Boshammer. UWA Extension and Boffins Books collaboration.
