Territory by Judy Nunn( Book )

This legendary story of disaster and depravity is told in alternating chapters with the story of the Galloway family, station owners, and the story of Darwin itself, from the day it was bombed by Japanese fighter planes during WW2 and nearly flattened, to that extraordinary Christmas Day in 1974 when Darwin was again devastated by 'fury from the sky': this time in the form of Cyclone Tracy. Following the course of a priceless 16th century locket and the fortunes of the Galloway clan, Judy Nunn tells a breathtaking story of disaster, courage and passion and that Top End spirit that never says die
Floodtide by Judy Nunn( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;' Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare. Judy Nunn's ninth novel Floodtide, is a brilliant picture of life in the 'Iron Ore State', Western Australia. It follows a journey from the idyllic, carefree 1950s, through the mineral strikes of the 1970s when vast wealth is acquired and men become powerful beyond their dreams. The avarice of the 1980s sees a new breed arise, and the 90's issues in an age when innocence is lost. The mighty State is brought to its knees by greed, lust, and corruption of such magnitude that it threatens the downfall of the Australian Federal Government. Four young Western Australians travel this journey. Each has their story to tell, and each contributes, for better or for worse, to the changing face of their State. One fights to save the wild and beautiful Pilbara region from the careless ravaging of mining conglomerates, another leads the way in the growth of Perth from a sleepy town on a pretty river, to a glittering citadel of skyscrapers. But each of the four knows one thing - the tides of change are irreversible
Heritage by Judy Nunn( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a time when refugees seized with both hands the chance for freedom; a time when people of more than seventy nations gathered beneath the Southern Cross to forge a new national identity. From the blood of Berlin to the birth of Israel, from the Italian Alps to the Snowy Mountains, Heritage tells the story of the birth of new Australia. Judy Nunn is at the height of her powers in this passionate and fast-paced tale of rebirth, struggle, sacrifice and redemption
Spirits of the Ghan by Judy Nunn( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is 2001 and as the world charges into the new Millennium, a century-old dream is about to be realised in the Red Centre of Australia: the completion of the mighty Ghan railway, a long-lived vision to create the 'backbone of the continent', a line that will finally link Adelaide with the Top End. But construction of the final leg between Alice Springs and Darwin will not be without its complications, for much of the desert it will cross is Aboriginal land. Hired as a negotiator, Jessica Manning must walk a delicate line to reassure the Elders their sacred sites will be protected. Will her innate understanding of the spiritual landscape, rooted in her own Arunta heritage, win their trust? It's not easy to keep the peace when Matthew Witherton and his survey team are quite literally blasting a rail corridor through the timeless land of the Never-Never. When the paths of Jessica and Matthew finally cross, their respective cultures collide to reveal a mystery that demands attention. As they struggle against time to solve the puzzle, an ancient wrong is awakened and calls hauntingly across the vastness of the outback
Elianne by Judy Nunn( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1881 'Big Jim' Durham, an English soldier of fortune and profiteer, ruthlessly creates for Elianne Desmarais, his young French wife, the finest of the great sugar mills of the Southern Queensland cane fields, and names it in her honour. The massive estate becomes a self-sufficient fortress, a cane-consuming monster and home to hundreds of workers, but "Elianne' and its masters, the Durham Family, have dark and distant secrets; secrets that surface in the wildest and most inflammatory of times, the 1960s. For Kate Durham and her brothers Neil and Alan, freedom is the catchword of the decade. Young Australians leap to the barricades of the social revolution. Rock?n' roll, the Pill, the Vietnam War, the rise of Feminism, Asian immigration and the Freedom Ride join forces to rattle the chains of traditional values. The workers leave the great sugar estates as mechanisation lessens the need for labour. And the Durham family, its secrets exposed, begins its fall from grace ..."--Back cover
Tiger men by Judy Nunn( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a tiger town, a place at the bottom of the world where God turns a blind eye to pillage and plunder.' Van Diemen's Land was an island of stark contrasts; a harsh penal colony, an English idyll for its landed gentry, and an island so rich in natural resources it was a profiteer's paradise. Its capital Hobart Town had its contrasts too; the wealthy elite in their sandstone mansions, the exploited poor in the notorious slum known as Wapping, and the criminals and villains who haunted the dockside taverns and brothels of Sullivan's Cove. Hobart Town was no place for the meek. This is a saga of three families who lived through Tasmania's golden era, witnessed the birth of Federation and in 1915, watched their sons off to the Great War
Beneath the Southern Cross by Judy Nunn( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and Czech and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1783, nineteen-year-old Thomas Kendall is sentenced to transportation for attempted theft. He's lucky. If he hadn't been so young at the time and obviously led astray, the judge would not have taken pity on him. He'd have been dangling by the hangman's noose instead of rotting in Norwich Goal awaiting the next convict ship to who knows where. Several years later he finds himself bound for Australia and God knows what fate. But far from breaking his spirit the experience moulds this once unquestioning lad into a resourceful and resilient man. Through hard work, a keenly learnt sense of justice and the help of his loving wife Mary, Thomas first earns his freedom and then sets about creating the transport and property empire which will make him a very wealthy man. He's a little eccentric by the standards of the day, preferring to live in Surry Hills, close to the city he loves, rather than out Parramatta way where the successful and influential have built their sprawling mansions. He even befriends a local Aboriginal elder, Wolawara, learns his language and, much to the horror of the hoi polloi, bequeaths a parcel of land in Parramatta to him and his kin. But his idyll would not last. The next generation, brought up with the comforts and privileges of wealth would forge a irreparable rift that would echo down through the family for some 170 years; his Aboriginal friend and his family are forced off the land and Thomas dies bewildered by a world gone mad and troubled by a cryptic accusation that somehow it's all his fault
Kal by Judy Nunn( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kalgoorlie was a magnet to anyone with a sense of adventure, anyone who could dream. People were drawn there from all over the world, settling to start afresh or to seek their fortunes. They called it Kal. In a story as breathtaking and as sweeping as the land itself, bestselling author Judy Nunn brings Kal magically to life through the lives of two families, one Australian and one Italian. The Australian family are the Brearleys: Maudie, who runs the miners' pub in Kalgoorlie and who was brought up in a tent on the goldfields; her husband 'Flash Harry' Brearley, charismatic conman and shyster; and his young son, Jack. The Italian family are the Giannis, railway workers from a small village in the Italian Alps, who dream of making a better life for themselves 'at the bottom of the world' after they hear about the Western Australian goldrush of the late 1880s

From the South Australian vineyards of the 1850s to mega-budget movie-making in modern-day New York, Araluen tells the story of one man's quest for wealth and position and its shattering effect on succeeding generations.
