The Road Goes On   The Road Goes On is an historical novel set in New Zealand in the first half of the twentieth century. It tells the life story of a swagman, Rowdy Jack, so called because he is a quiet man. The swagman is a phenomenon that has virtually disappeared from our  modern society. Called in other cultures a tramp, he was a homeless wanderer who carried his total possessions in a swag. He survived by stopping at farmhouses and doing odd jobs for a meal and shakedown. The book presents an authentic picture of this way of life.
