Facey, A. B. (Albert Barnett)
Autobiography. Facey, A. B. (Albert Barnett), 1894-1982. Frontier and pioneer life -- Australia. Sheep ranchers -- Biography. Western Australia -- Biography.
Born in 1894, Facey 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.
