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 sixty 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
Summary
This is the extraordinary life of an ordinary man. It is the story of Albert Facey, who lived with simple honesty, compassion and courage. An orphan who started work at the age of eight on the rough West Australian frontier, Facey struggled as an itinerant rural worker, survived Gallipoli, the loss of his farm in the Depression, the death of his son in World War I and that of his beloved wife after sixty devoted years
