Albert had a hard life, being forced to work laboriously from age 9, working his little heart out for I picked up this by recommendation of my daughter, and the owner of Dymocks when spending a Christmas voucher. Albert had a hard life, being forced to work laboriously from age 9, working his little heart out for at times, little or no money, sometimes for people of little or no morals.

He had remarkable bush skills. His stories are told with candour and humour; he tells us simply how it was. Self-deprecating and deathly honest, I imagine him to have been a very calming soul. On his beloved surroundings and birds: They made the bush a beautiful place and helped one forget about loneliness I loved the bush.

On the harsh responsibility thrust upon a thirteen-year-old boy:. So, with these instructions, they set off on their much needed holiday. I was a little scared at first, but soon settled to doing the daily chores. At night I used to roam around with my rifle and make sure everything was safe. I even put in an extra wire around the sheep gate in case the dingoes troubled them.

I would have stayed behind if I had known. I have always felt that I could sell out or walk off at any time. I never ever worried about trying something different or having a go at something. I have always believed that if you want to do something you usually can. We had been married for fifty-nine years, eleven months and twelve days. So on this day the loveliest and most beautiful woman left me.

I adore this writing. This is so beautiful: I have lived a good a very good life, it has been very rich and full. I have been very fortunate and I am thrilled by it when I look back.

I loved this softly spoken and honest story. No fanfare and fuss free for this busy age we live in. So glad my year-old daughter tells me this is her favourite book.
