Bryce Courtenay has created an unforgettable story of the enduring bond between two brothers.
Brutally kidnapped and separated in childhood, Tommo and Hawk are reunited at the age of fifteen in Hobart Town. Together they escape their troubled pasts and set off on a journey into manhood. From whale hunting in the Pacific to the Maori wars of New Zealand, from the Rocks in Sydney to the miners' riots in the goldfields, Tommo and Hawk must learn each other's strengths and weaknesses in order to survive.

Along the way, Hawk meets the outrageous Maggie Pye, who brings love and laughter into his life. But the demons of Tommo's past return to haunt the brothers. With Tommo at his side, Hawk takes on a fight against all odds to save what they cherish most.

An epic tale of adventure and romance from Australia's bestselling author.

'Tommo & Hawk is blockbuster material … It is impossible not to be impressed by Courtenay's talents. He is a superb storyteller.' Sunday Times (UK)

'The novel is not just concerned with the hurdy-gurdy of history, but the ageless condition of mankind … it is cannily crafted.' Sunday Age
