Originally published in 1944, this biography of Joseph Furphy was written by Miles Franklin. She tells of his multi-faceted life, from 1843 to 1912, including his days as a bullock-driver, and in Victoria building Furphy carts with his brother; of his friends and philosophy and his hopes for humanity and Australia.
From the author of "Such is Life", this book challenges us with death deceit, the vagaries of marriage and the embarassing brutality of pioneering encounters with Aborigines. With an introduction, envoi and notes by Frances Devlin Glass.
