Great read! Pat Ritter's writing is so detailed and descriptive that you can really see in your mind's eye what life was like as a drover in outback Queensland many years ago. My teenager is now starting on the book as well as there is stuff in this book they will NOT learn at school. The main character, Harry, is very likable and I did develop an appreciation of our forefathers and what they went through, and the grace by which they lived while out in the rough 'n tumble. I'd love to see a movie made out of this book! Lots of good ingredients there.

Once I opened this book, I couldn't put it down. I just had to know what happened next. Sue Bagust has written a seamless, thought-provoking and entertaining story. I was easily drawn into the fascinating story lines, which offered up new possibilities for how human life could actually be playing out. A story that not only entertains but gets you to think.
