Faraway Hill is a novel by H.A. Lindsay, published in 1963 by Rigby. In Faraway Hill the reader follows the fortunes of an Australian couple from a construction camp on the River Murray to a city slum, then to an arduous life of commercial bee-keeping. At last they are able to buy a farm, one reduced by mismanagement to such a run-down condition that it carries only weeds and rabbits, and embark on the long struggle to restore it to its former fertility. A number of interesting characters lend colour to the scene-among them being itinerant bush-workers, squatters, a man who brings about a minor revolution in agriculture through the introduction of Negeb clover, and an unusual woman who wins back what her happy-go-lucky brothers have lost. As with H. A. Lindsay's other novels, the background -covering the period from the Depression to the Second World War- is accurately and convincingly drawn, and the author again proves his ability to tell a gripping story. First Edition. Condition: Good. Dust jacket: Good with general shelf wear. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
