More About Ivan Southall
Ivan Southall was born in Melbourne and grew up in the suburb of Surrey Hills. He started writing his first book when he was 14 and by the age of 20 had written four books, three of which were revised and published after World War II. During the war Southall served in the RAAF, based in England. At the end of the war he worked in England as a war historian for the RAAF. On his return to Australia he became a full-time writer, supplementing his income from farming his property in the Dandenong Ranges. Since 1950 he has written about 60 books, mostly for young people, and his books have been translated and published in 23 languages.
The first "real book" I had ever read, a great story! Oct 12, 1999
Like many "first's" in life, I can recall the first time I read Ash Road. It depicted a time, and place, and culture, that was completely different to my own. As a young person, the book moved me to interpret life, and indeed the world, in a new light. From that point on in my educational career, I embraced the idea of reading for "pleasure", an undertaking that has literally changed my life. Thank you Mr. Southall. Now I plan on giving Ash Road as a birthday gift to my sixth grade daughter, who is constantly bothering me to stay up "just a little longer", .......to read.
