The Making of Martin Sparrow


Peter Cochrane In Conversation with Anna Vidot

Delve into Australia’s rich history with this fascinating novel from historian Peter Cochrane. Ex-convict Martin Sparrow is already struggling to survive in the young colony when the Hawkesbury’s great flood of March 1806 lays waste to him and his farm. But does salvation lie on the far side of the mountains – a chance for renewal and redemption? Harrowing and entertaining, The Making of Martin Sparrow is a wonderfully evocative version of Australia’s convict times. In conversation with ABC journalist Anna Vidot
