This radio dramatisation conveys the simple honesty, compassion and integrity of Albert Facey - a man who faced great hardship and suffering yet believed his life was fortunate.
A parentless boy who started work at the age of eight on the rough West Australian frontier, he struggled as an itinerant rural worker, and survived the gore of Gallipoli, the loss of his farm in the Depression, the death of his son in World War II and that of his beloved wife after sixty devoted years.
