A Fortunate Life
A true classic of Australian literature, this simply written autobiography is an inspiration
Born in 1894, Albert Facey lived the rough frontier life of a sheep farmer, survived the gore of Gallipoli, raised a family through the Depression, and spent 60 years with his beloved wife, Evelyn. Despite enduring hardships we can barely imagine today, Facey always saw his life as a “fortunate” one. A true classic of Australian literature, his simply written autobiography is an inspiration. It is the story of a life lived to the full-the extraordinary journey of an ordinary man.
