A rifle-shot of a novel – crisp, fast, shocking – The Shepherd’s Hut is an urgent masterpiece about solitude, unlikely friendship, and the raw business of survival.

In one terrible moment Jaxie Clackton's life is stripped to little more than what he can carry and how he can keep himself alive. There’s just one person left in the world who understands him and what he still dares to hope for. But to reach her he’ll have to cross the vast saltlands on a trek that only a dreamer or a fugitive would attempt.

The Shepherd’s Hut is a searing look at what it takes to keep love and hope alive in a parched and brutal world.
Industry Reviews
"Winton thrusts the reader into the barren and unforgiving salt land in western Australia . . . An absolute thrill to read."
Booklist

"A mournful and fast-paced journey into the life of a young man on his own . . . Winton’s novel is alive with pain and suffering, but it is also full of moments of grace and small acts of kindness. Gorgeously written and taut with eloquent, edgy suspense, Jaxie’s journey is a portrait of young manhood amidst extreme conditions, both inward and outward."
Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

"The closest thing [Winton] has written to a full-dress action-adventure thriller . . . A gritty tale of survival and almost biblical self-revelation . . . Twisted in all sorts of comic and sinister ways."
The Saturday Paper

"[Winton] is a voice of sanity and his art is tuned to the possibility of care, even grace."
The Weekend Australian
