Quick Overview

By Ian Callinan

Published 2005, soft cover 346 pages

A Saga of War and Pearling.

The callow youth Charlie Land becomes a battle-hardened man when he rides in the legendary charges of the Australian Light Horse with General Chauvel at Beersheba and on to Damascus. After the war and amid the race riots in tumultuous Broome in the 1920s he plunges into the exotic world of pearling and the dangers of cyclones, sharks and the bends. Over the years, and on the foundation of a great tragedy, he builds an empire of pearls, land, and cattle, a newspaper and a copra plantation. For a time he lives the high life in the west and London. But in the whirlwind of prosperity and the Depression he is haunted by his personal tragedy. After the Monsoon is a saga of adventure, travel and entrepreneurial business spanning the two world wars. It is the jewel in the crown of the versatile Ian Callinan's now very considerable collection of diverse novels.
