Summary Note The award-winning tale of the motley crowd of travelling 'battlers'. The Battlers is the story of Snow - a drifter and wanderer; Dancy - a hard-bitten young woman; and the crowd that accompanies them as they travel the roads looking for work in the 1930s. Their story is told with compassion and humour and was warmly received by readers and critics alike. More than 50 years since its first publication the book's message of survival against the odds is as relevant today as it was then. It was awarded the SH Prior Memorial Prize and the Gold Medal of the Australian Literature Society.
