Publisher's Summary

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 miners' 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. In the final confrontation between good and evil, three magpie feathers become the symbol of Tommo and Hawk's rite of passage.

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Humphrey Bower captures each character, making listeners forget that one majestic voice creates the various natives, the Irish, the English, and people of all ages. Few will fail to be enthralled by this adventure saga, which skillfully captures history while keeping listeners glued to their earphones." (Audiofile)

    "disappointing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Frankly, I found this book extremely boring! I found the first book of the series a bit slow, but this one, I couldn't get past the first 3 chapters


    Would you ever listen to anything by Bryce Courtenay again?

    doubtful


    What three words best describe Humphrey Bower’s voice?

    rich, saving grace


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the narrator was the only thing that kept me listening as long as i did.


    Any additional comments?

    a complete waste of a credit for me. I have tried to return it and have been unable to

    "Well Worth the Credit"

    So far, I haven't found a Bryce Courtenay book that I didn't like. This is no exception. The reader is awesome. I am now headed for the third book in the trilogy.
