“Poverty Lodge: A Light Hearted Story of a Dream Fulfilled” takes us to a retired Australian Army lieutenant colonel and Vietnam veteran’s journey and dream of returning to his roots of a country childhood by persuading his wife and whole family to pack up, leave the rural life in Canberra and move to a rural farm and forest in Tasmania, which is a host to Australia’s unique flora and fauna in the mid-eighties.

Gordon Pound’s vivid description, wry English and laconic Australian humor gives us a clear narration of how things were in those days in Tasmania. It is like taking a ride in memory lane, seated in the front seats, as he recounts the adventures, renovations, experiences, and endeavors as they begin their life in Poverty Lodge. The scene-by-scene passage in the book, with real-life characters, makes it very appealing and inspiring to people of different walks of life.

He further shares, “A new sense of excitement gripped the household. After doing one thing for quarter of a century, of which only the last few years had been a pain in the arse, here I was setting out on a completely new venture and my enthusiasm communicated itself to the rest of the family. We ignored the TV, made lists of things to do that seemed endless and awaited each decision that was outside our control with the utmost trepidation. Would my resignation be accepted? Would we be able to sell the house in time for a reasonable price? I felt like a juggler trying to keep a range of assorted objects in the air at the same time.”

This book exemplifies dreams, adventures, challenges, and inspirations of how a man can turn his life around by a firm decision and strongly provides a great insight that life runs its course based on choices and decisions. It is never perfect but we can choose on how we perceive them as they come along.
