Printing Details

First US edition. Hardback, bound in the original blue cloth with gilt titling to spine and upper board. 19 × 13cm, 388pp.

Jack Grant arrives in Western Australia in 1882, having been expelled from his public school and then sent down from an agricultural college. He experiences hunting, farming, gold mining, fights and his first love of women. His character is forged by the Australian landscape and its hard, no-nonsense people. From the young boy emerges a tough Lawrentian hero.


A good copy, with some rubbing to the blue cloth and light foxing and tanning to the pages. It remains in strong readable condition.
