With three generations of her family, Wendy Folvig lived almost fifty years on Yeelirrie Station near Wiluna in Western Australia. They developed and worked Yeelirrie from 1923-1972 when a major uranium discovery was announced and the station was sold.

Wendy was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) on Australia Day, 2013 for community service in a number of organisations. These included sixty years continuous membership of the Country Women's Association of Western Australia, and the National Trust of Australia (WA). Wendy is a life member of both bodies.

This is a story of many parts: life on an outback station, family serving in the Great War, mining for gold, the discovery of uranium, and a life beyond Yeelirrie.
