Description

In the beginning there had been only High Peaks, the MacLeod family property in the heart of Australia's rugged high country. Andrew and Anne MacLeod struggled on the land to give David, their only son and heir, a better life. Wracked by grief following his father's death, David is determined to succeed. With the MacLeod love of the land running in his blood, and the beautiful Catriona at his side, he builds an impressive empire of grazing properties for the sons he hopes will follow him. But grooming a suitable heir proves as challenging and heartbreaking as rural life itself. It is David's passion for his beloved high country, and the support of the women in his life, that keep his dream alive. Here is a story that will transport you to the heartland of Australia's bush and keep you spellbound till the very last page. 'If you're looking for a saga that provides action, romance and intrigue with a particular Australia flavour, then look no further then Return to the High Country.' Southern Highland News

About Tony Parsons

Tony Parsons, OAM, has worked as a professional sheep and wool classer, a journalist, news editor and rural commentator, a consultant to major agricultural companies, and an award-winning breeder of animals and show poultry. He owned his first kelpie dog in 1944, and in 1950 established 'Karrawarra', one of the top kelpie studs in Australia. In 1992 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for his contribution to the propagation of the Australian kelpie. His novels, The Call of the High Country, Return to the High Country, Valley of the White Gold and Silver in the Sun, have all been bestsellers. He is also the author of Training the Working Kelpie, The Australian Kelpie and, in 2010, The Kelpie, now regarded as classic works on the breed. Tony lives with his wife, Gloria, near Toowoomba. He still maintains a keen interest in kelpie breeding.
