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. To mark the 50th anniversary, Val Noone, who spent time with her on that occasion, puts on record details of her stay and explores 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.
