"Experiences of hardship can be the catalyst for growth and change."

Jim accepting his death and that life goes on, overcoming ugliness

Jim Ryan approaches his death with despair and surrender without the ability to accept change. Jim Saddler on the other hand recognises death is part of a process and greets it with acceptance. When confronted with the ugliness of war Jim Saddler from 'Fly Away Peter' chooses to see the light of his circumstances. Initially the "rotting planks" and "decaying corpses" Jim encounters in the trenches coupled with the devastating loss of his friend Clancy leave him physically nauseated, traumatised and confused. The loss of war first touched him and "his screams came up without sound." As he falls into a state of despair he begins to lose hope believing the war "had broken him." This is until he noticed a farmer pushing through the detestation of war to plant his crops. This awakens the idea within Jim that life goes on and in spite of everything it continues, carrying him to once again record his sights of the "larks", "wrynecks" and "yellow wagtails". From this Jim draws consolation and hope, understanding that life continues despite individual hardships. Although both these men die they reach their deaths with differing philosophies and contrasting beliefs.

Jim Saddler conforming to enlist, leading to his death

Malouf shows us that following social trends can have major consequences on a characters life. Jim Saddler is a quiet and independent character who records bird life. "He had no stories of his own." When the war started he tried to resist the trend and expectation in society of enlisting." The time would come when he wouldn't be able any longer to resist. He would slide with the rest. Down into the pit." Malouf shows us that social trends can be extremely powerful and even independent people like Jim are not always able to resist. Jim enlisted to the war, a decision influenced by social trends that ultimately led to his death.

Perkins also shows us that conforming to social trends can lead to death. When their daughter goes missing, Rose and her husband Jim refuse the help of an aboriginal tracker because of society's prejudicial view on aborigines. Rose confirmed to social trends even though this man would have been able to find her daughter as "This land is me (him)" When she finally accepts his help, it is too late and Emily is already dead. Perkins and Malouf use characters to demonstrate that complying with social trends and expectations can have devastating effects.
