Book Launch

Join us to celebrate the launch of
The Glass Soldier by Don Farrands
Nelson Ferguson, from Ballarat, was a stretcher-bearer on the Western Front in France in World War I. He survived the dangers of stretcher-bearing in some of Australia's most horrific battles: the Somme, Bullecourt, Ypres and Villers-Bretonneux. In April 1918, at Villers-Bretonneux, he was severely gassed. His eyes were traumatised, his lungs damaged.

This is the true story of a young Australian soldier whose life of opportunity was cut down by trauma yet revived by strength and providence.

Don Farrands is the grandson of the Glass Soldier, NH Ferguson.

Don will be talking about the book and signing copies. Books will be available for purchase $34.99 with all Royalties being donated to the Fred Hollows Foundation
