Bert Facey taught himself to read and write. He was not successful, rich or famous. Yet his life story, published when he was eighty-seven, became an award-winning best-seller, and has inspired many thousands of readers. It is the story of a life lived with simple honesty, compassion and courage; of a parentless boy who started work at eight on

the rough West Australian frontier; who struggled as an itinerant rural labourer; who survived the gore of Gallipoli, the death of his son in World War II and that of his beloved wife after sixty devoted years - yet felt his life was fortunate. 220 x 147mm., pp. 10 (preliminaries), pictorial endpapers (photographs), 334, black & white illustrations, maps, Hard cover, blue cloth covered boards, silver embossed spine (title, author, publisher), in pictorial slip case.
