Description: Dorothy Day (1897-1980), writer and co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, is one of the most interesting and puzzling figures in the history of American Catholicism and of American dissent.

With Peter Maurin, a wandering French-born scholar, she ran a house of hospitality in New York's lower east side and founded a monthly newspaper called the Catholic Worker, from which a movement grew and continues today.

In August 1970, Dorothy visited Australia. Val Noone, spent time with her and recorded details of her stay and explored her long-term impact. For instance, in Australia, her practice and ideas offered an alternative to the Santamaria movement. This book tables and respects the intriguing enigmas of Dorothy's life, with a focus on her Australian connections. Although dealing with religion, it is written for the general reader.
