Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Harry, Best wishes from Peter Hopegood (Cedric)". England-born Peter Hopegood (1891-1967, birth name Cedric Hopegood) established himself in Australia after serving in the First World War. In this "informal autobiography" the author, best known for his mystical poetry, recalls his time serving in France during the war as well as his pre- and post-war adventures in Canada and the Antipodes, subsiding on odd jobs such as cow-puncher, horse-breaker, gaol warder, and finally trying his hand at "cattle-farming, pearl-fishing and much else besides" (front flap blurb).
