Description - The Story Of Danny Dunn by Bryce Courtenay

Set against a backdrop of Australian pubs and politics, The Story of Danny Dunn is a family saga spanning three generations. It is a compelling tale of love, ambition and the destructive power of obsession at a time of great change in Australia's history.
In the aftermath of the Great Depression few opportunities existed for working-class boys, but at just eighteen Danny Dunn has everything going for him- brains, looks, sporting ability - and an easy charm. His parents run The Hero, a neighbourhood pub, and Danny is a local hero.

Luck changes for Danny when he signs up to go to war. He returns home a physically broken man, to a life that will be changed forever. Together with Helen, the woman who becomes his wife, he sets about rebuilding his life.

Set against a backdrop of Australian pubs and politics, The Story of Danny Dunn is an Australian family saga spanning three generations. It is a compelling tale of love, ambition and the destructive power of obsession.
