Mildly interesting story about squabbling between a sheep farmer and his neighbours in Victorian Queensland, made slightly more so because I have just read a Bill Bryson book on Australia and also in the light of the forest fires we have been having here in BC this summer. (Clearly Trollope did not regard lightning strikes as a potential source of fire.)

Nothing much really happened, although Harry's character was well-drawn and Trollope managed to fit a small romance in. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192828460, Paperback)

Trollope's only Australian novel, Harry Heathcote of Gangoil deals with the problems facing a young sheepfarmer, or 'squatter' (modelled after Trollope's son Frederic) in outback Australia. Using conventions of the Christmas story established by Dickens in the late 1840s, the novel shows Harry Heathcote thwarting the envious ex-convict neighbors who harbor his disgruntled former employees and who attempt to set fire to his pastures. Trollope draws heavily on his knowledge of the social and economic conditions of bush life acquired during a year-long visit to Australia in 1871-2.
