Beautifully written and affecting, this is the true story of a young man caught in a world he can’t control and how he finds a way to survive.
In 1972 Mark May is eighteen. He is bright, beautiful and has a scholarship to study law. Ten years later he descends alone into remote gorge country in north-western New South Wales. He lives in rough camps and stays for thirty-five years. Then, on a feeling, his brothers go looking for him.
