Tiger Men, Judy Nunn, 9781864712186, Books in Australia

By: Doubleday  09-Dec-2011

Judy Nunn’s Tiger Men is the dramatic tale of three families who lived through Tasmania's golden era and witnessed the birth of the Commonwealth of Australia and the horrors of World War I.
Tasmania, or Van Diemen's Land as it was once called, was an island of stark contrasts; a harsh penal colony, an English idyll for its landed gentry, and an island so rich in natural resources it was a profiteer's paradise.
Tiger Men is the story of three Tasmanian settlers: Silas Stanford, a wealthy Englishman; Mick O'Callaghan, an Irishman on the run; and Jefferson Powell, an idealistic American.
A former actress and TV presenter, Judy Nunn is the bestselling Aussie author of Pacific, Floodtide and Maralinga.

Judy Nunn's first bestsellers were set in the worlds of television, film and theatre which, as a former actor, she knew well. Since then, her novels have taken their inspiration from the Australian experience, and include titles like Beneath The Southern Cross, Territory and Floodtide.
