AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Set on a station in the North West of Western Australia, in Perth and in the USA. It is a curious patchwork of fiction, distortion, half-truth and social criticism ... And the honest history graduate from the University of Western Australia would have to agree that Mr Shute would do well to enrol as a student in the Department of History if he is not to perpetrate further travesties of the truth. (F. K. Crowley, Westerly No. 3 1956, pp41-3.)

Notes

  • Epigraph: Two stanzas from 'Stone Cutters Cut It on Stone', a song from Oscar Hammerstein's Carousel.
  • Other formats: Also braille and sound recording.
