"I have written his story with sorrow for his suffering and pleasure in his triumph...If there is anything to be learnt from the record of Lawson's life it is the old truth which every generation discovers that:

Men may rise on stepping-stones
Of their dead selves to higher things."

I think Roderick does a fine job of telling the story of the "real" Henry Lawson.
