The Night Country is an enchanting and inspiring story from one of Australia's most popular authors, Bryce Courtenay, which draws on the author's childhood in Africa.

Towards the end of the Great Depression a young boy goes with his sister to stay at a farm while their mother is ill. There, during a scorching African summer, he witnesses a trial and punishment which will forever remind him of white men's cruelty to black people.

Beautifully packaged with striking watercolour illustrations, The Night Country is a fable for all ages - a powerful account of the strength that lives within us all.

    Comments about The Night Country - Chapter Book:

    So sad we dont have Bryce Courtney with us any more. Have read all his books except the latest, which I am about to start. This book had an unusual and heart-warming story. Similar to his early books about Africa.
