ABOUT THE BOOK
Brutally kidnapped and separated in childhood, Tommo and Hawk are reunited at the age of 15 in Hobart Town. Together they escape their troubled pasts and set off on a journey into manhood. From whale hunting in the Pacific to the Maori Wars of New Zealand, from the Rocks in Sydney to the miner's riots at the goldfields, Tommo and Hawk must learn each other's strengths and weaknesses in order to survive. Along the way, Hawk meets the outrageous Maggie Pye, who brings love and laughter into his life. But the demons of Tommo's past return to haunt the brothers. With Tommo at his side, Hawk takes on a fight against all odds to save what they cherish most.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Bryce Courtenay was born illegitimately in 1933 in South Africa and spent his early childhood years in a small town deep in the heart of the Lebombo mountains. It was a somewhat isolated community and grew up among farm folk and the African people. At the age of five he was sent to a boarding school which might be better described as a combination orphanage and reform school, where he learned to box - though less as a sport and more as a means to stay alive.
He survived to return to a small mountain town named Barberton in the North Eastern part of the country. Here he met Doc, a drunken German music teacher who spent the next few years filling his young mind with the wonders of nature as they roamed the high mountains. His was the best education he was ever to receive, he said, despite the scholarship he won to a prestigious boy's school and thereafter to a university in England where he studied Journalism.
He came to Australia because he was banned from returning to his own country. This was due to the fact that he had started a weekend school for Africans in the school hall of the prestigious boy's school he attended. One day the school hall was raided by the police who then branded him a Communist as they considered educating Africans a subversive act.
While studying journalism, he met a Australian girl. "Come to my country!" Benita invited. He did, and soon after arriving in Australia, married her. Benita gave him three splendid sons, Brett, Adam and Damon. Brett.
He lived all his Australian life in Sydney and, until he started writing fiction, made a career in advertising working as a copywriter and creative director. At the age of 55 he decided to take the plunge. He had been telling stories since the age of five and had always known he would be a writer some day, though life kept getting in the way until he realised that it was either now or never.
Bryce Courtenay died at his home in Canberra, Australia. He was 79.
