Description

The Night Country is an enchanting and inspiring story from one of Australia's most popular authors, Bryce Courtenay, which draws on the author's childhood in Africa. Towards the end of the Great Depression a young boy goes with his sister to stay at a farm while their mother is ill. There, during a scorching African summer, he witnesses a trial and punishment which will forever remind him of white men's cruelty to black people. Beautifully packaged with striking watercolour illustrations, The Night Country is a fable for all ages - a powerful account of the strength that lives within us all. 'It is gripping but deeply distressing writing...nonetheless it should be read and discussed.' The Canberra Times 'The Night Country is as frank and funny as it is poetic and painful. It is a deeply personal collection with universal relevance' Adelaide Advertiser 'An impressive and magnificent story which should be read by all' Hobart Mercury 'A gripping saga set in apartheid South Africa' New Woman
