The tale of an impoverished Welsh stonecutter that became the first Labor Premier of South Australia.
Born in 1852 to an alcoholic father and an illiterate mother, Tomas Price would overcome the daunting obstacles of the slums of Liverpool, become an apprentice at the age of nine, discover the value of education and, against the odds, marry the woman he loved.
Immigrating to South Australia in 1883, to seek remedy from stonecutters' lung disease, Tom and his family possessed nothing but a chest of belongings and determination to somehow make the world a happier place for working men and women. (back cover)
