Swords and Crowns and Rings: Text Classics

By  Ruth Park

Introduced by Alice Pung
Growing up in an Australian country town before World War I, Jackie Hanna and Cushie Moy are carefree and innocent in their love for each other. But Jackie is a dwarf, and his devotion to the beautiful Cushie is condemned by her parents.
This is the story of their lifelong odyssey, and of the triumph of a special kind of courage.
In Swords and Crowns and Rings, Ruth Park brilliantly captures the mood of Australia in the first part of the twentieth century.
