Beyond the Black Stump.
by Shute, Nevil.

Publisher Information:
William Heinemann,, London:: 1956..

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with just a hint of wear to the spine. If somewhere is 'beyond the black stump' it means it is in the deepest darkest wilds of the Australian outback. This is the sun-baked setting for Nevil Shute's novel of a romance that is tested by the differences between two young people's home lives. Stanton Laird is sent from his small town in America to work in a remote outpost in Western Australia. While out there he befriends the unconventional Regan family and falls in love with the daughter Mollie. However, when Mollie travels to America to visit him the couple realise that their differences in background make their plans for a future together hard to realise.
