A Long Way from Misery

Author(s): Jack Turner (University of Washington)


Born in 1926, Jack lived in a different time, but the way he sees it, they were better days. He loved his childhood growing up with his many siblings on a farm called Misery, and retells it with delight. A Long Way from Misery takes you on a rollicking journey through the Australia of yesteryear with Jack Turner, the larrikin shearer, as he rescues his brother from being drowned by a kangaroo, rides a wild steer through the house, and leaps off a moving train. But these misadventures are nothing compared to his mother wielding a carving knife.
