Summary

Born in 1894, Facey lived the rough frontier life of a sheep farmer, survived the gore of Gallipoli, raised a family through the Depression and spent 60 years with his beloved wife, Evelyn. Despite enduring hardships we can barely imagine today, Facey always saw his life as a "fortunate" one. A true classic of Australian literature, his simply written autobiography is an inspiration. It is the story of a life lived to the full - the extraordinary journey of an ordinary man.

A hard but amazing life

It's a slow start, and it's tough but realistic view of country Australia at the start and during the 20th century. The part on world war 1 at Gallipoli is incredible and post the first war interesting.

It's a hard life he endured but a fortunate one and that given many take-away's in my own life and I have the upmost respect for what he endured and what is told.

Definitely read this.
