  • Epigraph:
    'When the heavy sand is yielding backward from your blistered feet,
    And across the distant timber you can see the flowing heat;
    When your head is hot and aching, and the shadeless plain is wide,
    And it's fifteen miles to water in the scrub the other side -
    Don't give up, don't be down-hearted, to a man's strong heart be true!
    Take the air in through your nostrils, set your lips and see it through...'

    -Henry Lawson
