Description

He thought of himself as a tiny minnow in an extremely large ocean. But maybe, just maybe, that swish of the minnow's tail or the ripple of the swallow's flight feathers on the waters of the Port had wafted a little essence of the Peninsula to the rest of the world. Life-long friends, Jack, Harry and Peter, were born in 1933 and spent their early childhood on the Tasman Peninsula. They sought careers far from their homeland but, despite living far apart as adults and following their own guiding stars, they, like the swallows, returned time and again to their birthplace. Swallows Fly North is their story - a tale of boys growing from romantic children to the realities of manhood during the years from 1940 to 1963; a tale of migration, regeneration and the protection of cultural heritage.
