- In 1941, when his admired twenty-year-old cousin Rick left to join the army, Rob Coram was six.
- Geraldton and the sheep stations owned by his numerous relatives formed his world.
- The war, remote in place and interest, seemed hardly farther away than Australia—a country Rob had heard of without realizing he lived there.
- During the next eight years everything was to change for Rob.
- Semi-autobiographical, yet not a self-portrait, this story of a boy growing up as part of an Australian clan in a small town and the country around it marvelously evokes a sense of identity of Australia, its history and fate.
