At the turn of the century, Stan Parker takes a wife and makes a home as a small farmer in the wilderness of Australia. Amy bears his children and time brings him a procession of ordinary events - achievements, disappointments, sorrows and dreams. Steeped in Australian myths and folklore, White, in only his fourth novel, burrows his way through Australian culture.

Patrick White won the 1973 Nobel Prize for Literature.
