Run away to the circus with this book by award-winning Australian novelist Katharine Susannah Prichard. Welcome to Haxby's Circus, the lightest, brightest little show on earth. From Bendigo to Narrabri, the Haxby family and their troupe pitch the big top, hang the lights and call out their menagerie. Gina Haxby, the bareback rider, has a dreadful accident. What's to be if she can never ride again? What is her place now, amongst her brothers, sisters and fellow showmen? The adage is: you run away with the circus to find yourself, but what if it's all you've ever known? Gina must be the master of her own fate. In a plume of feathers, a swish of satin and at the sound of the drum and tin whistle, the dinkum circus must go on.
