The Far Country Reviews


"Enjoyable story of love blossoming over the scalpels" * Evening Standard *
"A heartlifting novel by a master-weaver of romance and adventure" * Boston Herald *
"Nevil Shute made me yearn for a faithful, plodding, Shute-type of man. I imagined us trekking across the Australian outback, finding a run-down hamlet, and then transforming it together until death or flood parted us" -- Sue Townshed * The Times *
