Publisher's Summary

Behind the uneasy trees rose the hills, and beyond them again the country of the lost, huge wilderness between this last haunt of civilisation and the unpeopled sea.

Exhausted and losing faith, an Anglican minister flees his mission in Australia's northwest for the vast emptiness of the outback. In the soul country of the desert, the old man searches for the islands of the Aboriginal dead, reflecting on past transgressions and on his life's work.

A Lear-like tale of madness and destruction, published when Randolph Stow was only 22, To the Islands is compelling and wise - a poetic masterpiece.

©1981, 2015 Randolph Stow; introduction: Bernadette Brennan. (P)2016 Bolinda
