Summary

Going back where you came from is harder if it's where you already are...

 

Migrants arrive in the Lucky Country from lands their forebears knew for a thousand years. They know where they are and why they’re here and what they face.

 

Then there are their children…born in a country that can't spell their names, and of a heritage that doesn't know they were born.

 

Reminded every day that he doesn't quite belong, and reminding himself where others forget or couldn't care less, second generation Ed Kaspar sets out on a journey to not only be an Australian but to be his country, to “be Australia,” with nineteenth century bush-balladist Henry Lawson as his guide.

 

Determined to “romance the swag,” Ed abandons his career for outback sheep stations. He works his way to an iconic identity while at a crossroads in his life, while his nation is at a crossroads of its own.

 

The chronicle explores the changing face of Australia, and a name among many that it went by, Ed Kaspar.

 

With its small town focus, A Country Of Our Clay nonetheless brings a universality to a narrative with the power to awaken and share wherever anyone needs a place to call home.
