    Caine Neiheisel is stuck in a dead-end job at the end of a dead-end relationship when the chance of a lifetime falls in his lap. His mother inherits her uncle’s sheep station in New South Wales, Australia, and Caine sees it as the opportunity to start over, out on the range where his stutter won’t hold him back and his willingness to work will surely make up for his lack of knowledge.

    Story
    What did you like best about Inherit the Sky? What did you like least?

    Bonzer story, but hearing an American try to narrate Aussie dialogue is both painful and hilarious. I was puzzled for ages over what a gulla might be. Galah, a very stupid bird even by bird standards, is pronounced galaaaaah. And it's DRYzabone as in dry as a bone, not drizzabone. And way too many other jarring mispronunciations.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Couldn't they at least have hired someone who's spoken to an Aussie once or twice....


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I'd consider it.
