Review:

"The novel fascinates in its record of the hazards and joys shared by a rich and rewarding company of personalities" (Scotsman)

"The best novel its author has written for some time...his characters...are carved out with fine bold strokes, and the red dust of his million-acre ranch fairly gets in your throat" (Daily Telegraph)

"That shattering, unaffected, literary style of his is wholly deceptive...is, in fact, masterly" (H.E. Bates)

"A brilliantly descriptive writer, a master of suspense" (David Holloway)

Book Description:

A classic adventure from the author of A Town Like Alice and On the Beach.
