Vagabonds, failures and criminals, these are the people refered to as "battlers". Tennant is the author of "Tiburon". "The Battlers" won the S.H. Prior Memorial Prize. Her work was known for its well-researched, realistic, yet positive portrayals of the lives of the underprivileged in Australia. In a video interview filmed in 1986, three years before her death for the Australia Council's Archival Film Series, Tennant told how she lived as the people she wrote about, travelling as an unemployed itinerant worker during the Depression years, living in Aboriginal communities and spending a short time in prison for research.
