Morris West was born in Australia in 1916 but lived for extended periods in Italy, Austria, England and the USA. West started writing novels in the 1950s. He is the author of 30 novels and has sold more than 60 million copies of his books worldwide in over 27 languages. West helped to found the Australian Society of Authors, was chairman of the National Book Council, chairman of the National Library of Australia and a fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science. He was made member of the order of Australia (MBE) in 1985 and officer of the order of Australia (AO) in 1997. West also wrote screenplays, radio dramas, plays and was also an artist. He died in 1999.From AudioFile:
The mental image that recurs during the telling of this story is of a dark green, brown, and stony landscape. This is the continuing picture of a man gone to find peace for himself in an unprepossessing part of Scotland. While he deals with his own demons, he meets a fierce scamp called the Red Wolf. As Stanley McGeagh reads the story, his use of the Scottish accent colors any part of the landscape Morris West might have missed in his writing. McGeagh's burr is charming and certainly defines the Scottish characters, as does his Gaelic speech. But what's difficult for the listener is the dropping of each sentence ending to a depth that one cannot hear. If that's the way of the language, it should be adjusted a bit for the untrained ear.
