The Fortunes of Richard Mahony is Australia's most significant nineteenth-century work. It tells the story of Richard Mahony, loosely based on the author's own father, and his rise and tragic fall in Australia's gold rush.

Despite a happy marriage and children, Irish migrant Richard Mahony struggles to quell his growing restlessness, with tragic consequences.

All three volumes - Australia Felix, The Way Home and Ultime Thule - are included here. The trilogy stands as one of the great portraits of the Australian canon-and a vivid depiction of the migrant experience.
