About this title

Synopsis:

Born on a poor dairy farm in Queensland, Frank Harland’s life is centered on his great artistic gift, his passionate love for his father and four brothers and his need to repossess, through a patch of land, his family’s past. The story spans Frank’s life; from before the First World War, through years as a swaggie in the Great Depression and Brisbane in the forties, to his retirement to a patch of Australian scrub where he at last takes possession of his dream.
 
Harland’s Half Acre tells how a man sets out to recover the land his ancestors discovered and then lost and how, in fulfilment, this vision becomes a new reality.

Review:

A rare novel . . . rich in descriptive detail . . . and thoroughly persuasive in its portrayal of a world and an era.
