Now back in print - One of Australia's most loved children's books
Brought up in the solitary environment of exclusive boarding schools, Ryl has learned to be independent, but when her mysterious father dies, her whole world changes. Part of her inheritance is a half-share in a dilapidated farm which she shares with a scruffy grandfather she meets for the first time.
Pastures of the Blue Crane won the CBCA Book of the Year award in 1965, and has been loved by generations of Australian readers since. Set in the lush subtropics of Northern New South Wales, this classic story is both a moving portrait of family life, and a remarkable insight into a different Australia.

Read on a recommendation by a friend, who read it when she was younger. I can see why you might like it, and grow to love it when you are a child, but being a little older, I could only be taken by its charm. Delightful, refreshing and light. Read full review
