ISBN 978-1-922452-50-4 PAPERBACK


These recollections of a lad growing up at the end of the second millennium on a farm near a small Upper Hunter Valley town in New South Wales, Australia, recreate a glimpse of the way we were not so very long ago.

The tale tells of surviving illness and abuse in sometimes barefoot scarcity, yet with sufficient nurture, nourishment, new things – and hand-me-downs – to inspire feelings of wealth. There was a richness of family and friends, and foes enough to keep life interesting. This heart-warming yarn keeps the reader entertained, yet might challenge your views on public issues regarding people, prejudice and politics. It may even encourage you to think squarely.
