              Even though Midnite was 17, he wasn't very bright. So when his father died, his five animal friends decided to look after him. Khat, the Siamese, suggested he become a bushranger and Red Ned, his horse, offered to help. But it wasn't very easy, especially when Trooper O'Grady put... him in prison. So it was good that he found gold! 8+.

              Both a complex spiritual parable and an enduring apocalyptic vision, Tourmaline is Randolph Stow's most controversial novel. Tourmaline, in outback Western Australia, is dying: its mines lie abandoned and drought has taken hold. When the enigmatic young diviner Michael Random eme...rges from the desert, offering salvation to this parched town, desperate townspeople see him as a messiah. Random begins to spread the word of God - and to promise them water, that most precious resource. The once-comatose community is indeed stirred to life, by hate as much as by love, and its people find salvation neither in water nor gold.

              A Lear-like tale of madness and destruction, published when Randolph Stow was only twenty-two, To the Islands is compelling and wise - a poetic masterpiece. Behind the uneasy trees rose the hills, and beyond them again the country of the lost, huge wilderness between this last ha...unt of civilization 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 lif's work.

              Laid low by a tropical disease and an accompanying malaise, Crispin Clare returns to his ancestral home in East Anglia. Local folklore seeps into his fever dreams and into his writing, and the lines between reality and myth soon start to blur. In this finely woven tale of illness... and recovery, family and fable, Randolph Stow creates a unique imaginative landscape, populated by figures from old English myths and legends, and from Clare's present.

              In 1941, Rob Coram is six. The war feels far removed from his world of aunties and cousins and the beautiful, dry landscape of Geraldton in Western Australia. But when his favourite, older cousin, Rick, leaves to join the army, the war takes a step closer. When Rick returns from ...the war several years later, he has changed and Rob feels betrayed. The old merry-go-round that represents Rob's dream of utopia (the security of his family and of the land that is his home) begins to disintegrate before his eyes.
