Overview

Foundling Peter Tobin lived through a vanished age, a time when the wide Australian outback was opening up to the force of steel rails, steam power, visionary civic builders, and the power of determined men and their horses.

In the remote outback of the late 19th century, Peter makes his own way in the world, from drover, sheep shearer and horse breaker, training horses for the South African War, to wealthy man of the land.

The saga of a world now gone is told in powerful terms in the novel Thursday's Child: Journeys Far and Wide in the Australian Outback.

About the Author

Author Clive Thomas, who worked the land for half a century, spent his childhood years amongst the last of these rich characters, the Australian Bushmen. He has woven their campfire yarns into the tumultuous life story of Peter Tobin, covering the last decades of the 19th century to the end of World War II. He’s already written the book’s sequel covering the years 1948 to the 1970s. “In 2006 after I retired from being what you call a rancher and we call a ‘grazier,’ breeding sheep for wool and meat, my wife Katherine and I moved from Forbes, an inland town in New South Wales like Kangamite, (the town in the book) to the seaside. When I’d completed my memoir, I found I’d conjured up many characters from my past who belonged to an extinct species. They weren’t going to rest until I’d told their tales.”
