A book title of interest is: The Hands by Stephen Orr
An extract from the publisher's website states:
On a cattle station that stretches beyond the horizon, seven people are
trapped by their history and the need to make a living. Trevor Wilkie,
the good father, holds it all together, promising his sons a future he
no longer believes in himself. The boys, free to roam the world's
biggest backyard, have nowhere to go. Trevor's father, Murray, is the keeper of stories and the holder of the
deed. Murray has no intention of giving up what his forefathers created.
But the drought is winning. The cattle are ribs. The bills keep coming.
And one day, on the way to town, an accident changes everything.
