Synopsis: From the author of the beloved Barsetshire novels, a bracing tale of a rumbustious voyage abroad a "hell-ship." First American publication.
From the Publisher: "Trooper to the Southern Cross" is "the" unique novel among Angela Thirkell's many books. For in these surprising and fascinating pages, which were originally published in 1934 under the pseudonym "Leslie Parker," the modern chronicler of Barsetshire assumes the voice of an Australian army officer and relates an amusing, rough-and-tumble sea story about an eventful, post-World War I journey on a troop-carrying vessel deservedly labeled a "hell-ship." Thirkell's keen ear for dialogue, and her skillful use of her own first-hand experience of a voyage on a similarly rumbustious vessel, combine to create an amusing and spirited yarn.
