Brutally kidnapped and separated in childhood, Tommo and Hawk are reunited at the age of 15 in Hobart Town. Together, they escape their troubled pasts and set off on a journey into manhood. From whale hunting in the Pacific to the Maori wars of New Zealand, from the Rocks in Sydney to the miners' riots at the goldfields, Tommo and Hawk must learn each other's strengths and weaknesses in order to survive. Along the way, Hawk meets the outrageous Maggie Pye, who brings love and laughter into his life. But the demons of Tommo's past return to haunt the brothers. With Tommo at his side, Hawk takes on a fight against all odds to save what they cherish most. In the final confrontation between good and evil, three magpie feathers become the symbol of Tommo and Hawk's rite of passage.



"Narrator Humphrey Bower captures each character, making listeners forget that one majestic voice creates the various natives, the Irish, the English, and people of all ages. Few will fail to be enthralled by this adventure saga, which skillfully captures history while keeping listeners glued to their earphones." ( Audiofile)

Not what I expected...

I expected an interesting story about two very unlike brothers, about their lives in Australia and in New Zealand with the Maoris in society's context at the time. I am not at all curious about how to cheat when playing cards and for my liking, there is way too much violence, be it on a whaling ship, in prison or in the Maori wars. I learned just a little bit about Maori thinking, i.e. what's taboo, but I am convinced there could have been a lot more information about their culture. So, I chose the wrong book and therefore broke up half way through. Maybe the second half of the book is really interesting but I will never know...
