Set entirely in Australia, this Christmas story by Trollope reflects the author's readiness to diverge from the familiar paths that were most congenial to him and to his readership.

This book deals with the problems facing a young sheep-farmer, or 'squatter', in outback Australia. Its hero is modelled on Trollope's younger son Frederic, who had lived in Australia since 1865. Using the conventions of the Christmas story, established by Dickens in the 1840's, the novel shows Harry Heathcote thwarting the envious ex-convict neighbours who harbour his disgruntled former employees, and who attempt to set fire to his pastures.About the Author:
