An evocative story about the dreams and desperate realities of life on the land in the Australian outback from the joint-winner of The Australian/Vogel Literary Award. With spare, intense language, Nicholas Angel writes of this arid country and the people who struggle to work it.

Winner of the Australian/Vogel's Literary Award 2003.

With dreams of moving to a house by the sea haunting their every day, Millvan and his wife, Michelle, owners of a riverside property in a small outback farming community, struggle with drought, friends, adversaries and the wrenchingly familiar rural cycle of hope and despair.

Drown them in the Sea tells a compellingly honest story of the challenges and hardships of farming life in Australia. In vivid, vital language, Nicholas Angel captures both devastated landscape and human desire in this powerfully authentic evocation of life on the land.
