Book Description Collins, 1988. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1463 pp. In Poor Fellow My Country, Xavier Herbert returns to the region made his own in 'Capricornia' - Northern Australia. Ranging over a period of some six years, the story is set during the late 1930s and early 1940s; but it is not so much a tale of this period as Herbert's analysis and indictment of the steps by which we came to the Australia of today. Herbert parallels an intimate personal narrative with a tale of approaching war and the disconnect between modern Australia and its first inhabitants. With enduring portraits of a large cast of local and international characters, Herbert paints a scene of racial, familial and political disparity. Bookseller Inventory # 7929
