Summary

"With his fourth novel Earth Bruce Pascoe firmly establishes himself at the peak of contemporary Australian literature. Earth is a daring and thought provoking work; a novel of voices from the past and the present. The setting is the Victorian countryside, west of Melbourne during the latter part of the nineteenth century. The story unfolds through the lively dialogue of its protagonists, some wordly, others more ethereal. It is a story of love, denial, hypocrisy, greed, murder. There is also humour and warmth in the narrative, counterbalancing the sense of anger and sadness at the injustice, duplicity, mendacity and callous brutality being perpetrated in the name of Christianity, civilisation and progress. And ultimately there is hope amongst despair, as old values richly reassert themselves against overwhelming odds."--BOOK JACKET.
