A fortunate life audiobook
A B Facey
A true classic of Australian literature, his simply written autobiography is an inspiration.
Born in 1894, Albert Barnett Facey had no formal education, teaching himself to read and write. He lived the rough frontier life of a sheep farmer, survived the gore of Gallipoli, raised a family through the Depression and spent sixty years with his beloved wife, Evelyn. Despite enduring hardships we can barely imagine today, Facey always saw his life as a 'fortunate' one. A true classic of Australian literature, his simply written autobiography is an inspiration.
It is the story of a life lived to the full - the extraordinary journey of an ordinary man.
