AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The people of St. Helen are concerned for young Spit MacPhee. Spit lives a hand to mouth existence with his eccentric grandfather, Fyle MacPhee, in an old shanty on the banks of the Murray River. When old Fyle dies the townspeople seize the opportunity to do something about the vagabond Spit. He finds himself the subject of a dramatic court case which polarises the religious and moral attitudes of a typical Australian country town in the 1930s. Yet, such is the strength of young Spit's character that, when the truth about his life with his grandfather is revealed, no one is left unchanged. (Source: Trove)
