Slight wear. Crisp trade paperback.; "In the late nineteenth century when Englishman Hugh Mitchell moves to Australia to start a new life, he has no conception of what challenges lie ahead. He is propelled into a life of drought, hardship and loneliness but swept up in the tides of change in the developing coutnry. His long persistance leads to prosperity but not before his wife, succumbing to the isolation, returns to England, leaving Hugh wiht his young son reliant upon their largely Aboriginal staff. So begins a dynasty in a land unyielding though splendid, violent though magnificent, beautiful though brutal, where lives intertwine and weaknesses arise from unexpected areas; lives are shared and lost but fully lived." ; vii, 312 pages.
