Comments & Further Information

First UK edition hardback in very good condition for its age.  Age tanning to pages making them rather brown but still eminently readable.  Some foxing to edges of pages not affecting text.  The dust jacket is complete, still shows the price, but is showing signs of wear.  Small stain to the bottom of the dustjacket spine (not visible externally).

SYNOPSIS:  “It is August 1943 and Australia has been invaded and its perimeter occupied by the Japanese army.  Geoffrey Sawtell, a veteran of the Great War, and Frank Counihan, a drifter, are within a day’s ride of Bourke in western New South Wales.  The country is deserted andthey are travelling west destroying anything of use to the invaders.  A novel that illuminates the characteristics of Australian life between the wars.”
