Description

For years, Jaxie Clackton has dreaded going home. His beloved mum is dead, and he wishes his dad was too, until one terrible moment leaves his life stripped to nothing. No-one ever told Jaxie Clackton to be careful what he wishes for. 

And so Jaxie runs. There's just one person in the world who understands him, but to reach her he'll have to cross the vast saltlands of Western Australia. It is a place that harbours criminals and threatens to kill those who haven't reckoned with its hot, waterless vastness. This is a journey only a dreamer - or a fugitive - would attempt. 

Fierce and lyrical, The Shepherd's Hut is a story of survival, solitude and unlikely friendship. Most of all it is about what it takes to keep hope alive in a parched and brutal world.

Tim Winton is an Australian legend.

this was an amazing story. I had heard as such so I bought the audio book. I tried to listen but found her voice irritating, it clashes too much with the type of character she was portraying. a friend of my looked after my house and listened to it all in one go, totally drawn into to story. she told me that the story was so good that, after 10 minutes, you will not even notice the narrator. she insisted I try again. I did. I listened to the whole thing in one day . It's a dusty listen and makes me fear , love and miss my country. Kate Mulvany does an ace job. Thank you Kate and Tim. a ripper of a story. it's almost the R rated futur version of Randolph Stow's MIDNITE - The Story of a Wild Colonial Boy
