Patrick Garrity started life unwanted and unloved as the bastard son of a female convict. Barely out of his teens, he worked to make a new life for himself in the limitless back country of New South Wales. There he met Mayrah, the native girl he bought to satisfy his passions and the woman who would change his destiny and that of an entire continent. Divided by competing cultures, they were nevertheless united by their fierce love of the land -- and eventually, each other. Together they carved out an enormous empire in the great outback, and founded a new generation of Australians who would forever bear the imprint of their pride and passion.

I really enjoyed the story but these books should be read by an Aussie... somebody with a REAL Australian accent. It would have been so much better.
Putting the story aside for sleep was not an option. Every chapter as engrossing as the previous and simply getting the appetite for more. I had read this book some years before and it never left my memory. When I discovered an audio version, there was no hesitation. A second reading was as great as my first encounter.
Yes because I loved the book that I read years ago.
It was rather bland and blah. Parts of the story that excited me as a book, did not excite me at all listening to it.
I was going to buy the audio books for the rest of the series - I don't think so.
Lots of information on how to raise sheep. Not a lot of talking between charaters. There is more than one stoy in this book.
This is a nice long book, keeps you interested. I found that it is a little confusing because of the differant stories put into the book.
Although I did like this book and others in this series.
I believe that the reader puts in alot of emotion while reading, and that if I was just to read the book myself I would have become very bored and given up on the book.
