Winner of the Patrick White Literary Award, 1999. Introduction by Wayne Macauley.

There is no book in Australian literature like The Plains. In the two decades since its first publication, this haunting novel has earned its status as a classic.

A nameless young man arrives on the plains and begins to document the strange and rich culture of the plains families. As his story unfolds, the novel becomes, in the words of Murray Bail, 'a mirage of landscape, memory, love and literature itself'.
