Raw, sparse and beautiful, just like the Western Australian outback. ( )
  Mainlyme | Jun 25, 2015 |
a true outback story about life and love in the Australian outback, i didn't like the dogs feelings and thoughts at the beginning of the book but found it intriguing throughout the rest of the book , about 2 shearers ( Lew and Painter) and their hard lives and their work at Drysdale Downs and John Drysdale and his daughter Clara and their recently deceased Mother , quite graphic in some parts and i found it quite upsetting , but a great book .
