§ 1. Clym Yeobright decided he couldn’t let another day pass without speaking to his mother about her differences with him and Eustacia. He left after sunset, as the summer sun was too hot for the long walk to Blooms-End.

§ 2. Three miles into the journey he came to a spot where a soft perfume wafted across his path, and he stood still for a moment to inhale the familiar scent. While he stood, a sound between quiet breathing and a moan suddenly reached his ears. He looked to where the sound came from; but nothing appeared except the outline of some nearby shrubs. He moved a few steps in that direction, and now he perceived a figure by his feet.

§ 3. It never occurred to Yeobright that it might be one of his own family. Field workers had been known to sleep outdoors at these times, to save a long journey homeward and back again. Clym looked closer and saw that the form was feminine; and a feeling of distress came over him like cold air from a cave. He was not certain the woman was his mother until he stooped and beheld her face, pallid, and with closed eyes.

§ 4. Clym held her, asked her what had happened, but she couldn’t speak. The divide in their lives, which his love for Eustacia had caused, was not remembered by Yeobright. He thought only of the friendly past they had experienced together before the division.

§ 5. Clym took his mother in his arms and tried to carry her to Blooms-End. A mile from the house, his mother became restless and she motioned that something was wrong with her foot. It was red and swollen. The colour was livid near the ankle with a small scarlet speck, smaller than a pea, in the centre. It was an adder snake bite. The only cure was to rub the wound with the fat of other adders which had to be fried from their bodies.

Why did he leave his home at the time he did?

I remember that day very clearly. It was 26th December, 2004 and as we always did on this day, my friends and I had a barbecue, then went to the beach for a surf. We had a great day, completely unaware of the devastation that was about to be unleashed not so far from our hometown of Brisbane, Australia. When I returned home later that night, I heard the terrible news that a massive undersea earthquake in the Indian Ocean had triggered off a deadly tsunami. We would later learn, of course, that altogether it had killed around a quarter of a million people and left more than one-and-a-half million people homeless.

My friends and I had returned from a surfing trip to Indonesia earlier the same month, and I was particularly saddened by the destruction that occurred there, as I had felt a strong affection for the people I had met during my travels. (A43) ____ I was later to learn that Indonesia had sustained the worst physical damage of all the countries affected by the tsunami.

At the time, I was a successful florist in the city centre. I had spent years building up my client base and training staff. I really wanted to help, so I donated a percentage of the profits from my shop to the worst-affected areas in Indonesia. (A44) ____ I leased my business and flew over to Indonesia.

I joined an organisation of volunteers called Shelter, committed to rebuilding homes. After the tsunami, over 160 aid organisations and UN agencies began operations in Indonesia to provide shelter, food and schooling, so I wasn’t alone. Shelter’s focus was on rebuilding homes. 500,000 Indonesians didn’t have a roof over their heads, so they were desperately needed. I soon realised, however, that we weren’t just rebuilding homes, we were creating hope for the future.

I chose to join a housing charity, rather than a medical one, because I had previously trained as a carpenter and I believed I could make a difference with my talents. When I was a child, I was always fixing things. (A45) ____ I was just the type of person Shelter was looking for. Shelter found a role for me on building sites, teaching construction skills to the locals and supervising the production of materials such as bricks and roofing tiles.

Disease was common because of poor water and sanitary conditions, so Shelter tried to move the homeless out of temporary camps and into permanent proper homes as soon as humanly possible. (A46) ____ Many volunteers also suffered from these. I frequently experienced high fevers and rashes, and it was during these times that I most longed for the comforts of home.

Looking back, spending a year as a volunteer was the best decision I had ever made, but it wasn’t easy. (A47) ____ Most people were happy to help, but a few said that if I was going to drop out of ‘real life’ for so long I’d have to finance my humanitarian adventures myself. There was also the sheer physical labour. By the end of the day I was both physically and mentally exhausted. Sometimes my muscles ached so much that I couldn’t imagine continuing the next day. Back home in Brisbane, I continue to support Shelter by giving presentations on my year abroad and spreading the word about their charitable work. (A48) ____ I have also made countless lifelong friends. Furthermore, I am welcome in many homes in the area. My friends and I will definitely have somewhere to stay during our next surfing trip!


1) By the time I was in my twenties I could make furniture and had helped many friends with renovations and repairs to their homes.

2) I hoped that they had all escaped unharmed.

3) Many people had lost loved ones and the sorrow of the locals could be felt all around us.

4) However, I soon realised that I wanted to do more than give money.

I really wanted to help, so I donated a percentage of the profits from my shop to the worst-affected areas in Indonesia. (A44) ____ I leased my business and flew over to Indonesia.

I joined an organisation of volunteers called Shelter, committed to rebuilding homes. After the tsunami, over 160 aid organisations and UN agencies began operations in Indonesia to provide shelter, food and schooling, so I wasn’t alone. Shelter’s focus was on rebuilding homes. 500,000 Indonesians didn’t have a roof over their heads, so they were desperately needed. I soon realised, however, that we weren’t just rebuilding homes, we were creating hope for the future.

I chose to join a housing charity, rather than a medical one, because I had previously trained as a carpenter and I believed I could make a difference with my talents. When I was a child, I was always fixing things. (A45) ____ I was just the type of person Shelter was looking for. Shelter found a role for me on building sites, teaching construction skills to the locals and supervising the production of materials such as bricks and roofing tiles.

Disease was common because of poor water and sanitary conditions, so Shelter tried to move the homeless out of temporary camps and into permanent proper homes as soon as humanly possible. (A46) ____ Many volunteers also suffered from these. I frequently experienced high fevers and rashes, and it was during these times that I most longed for the comforts of home.

Looking back, spending a year as a volunteer was the best decision I had ever made, but it wasn’t easy. (A47) ____ Most people were happy to help, but a few said that if I was going to drop out of ‘real life’ for so long I’d have to finance my humanitarian adventures myself. There was also the sheer physical labour. By the end of the day I was both physically and mentally exhausted. Sometimes my muscles ached so much that I couldn’t imagine continuing the next day. Back home in Brisbane, I continue to support Shelter by giving presentations on my year abroad and spreading the word about their charitable work. (A48) ____ I have also made countless lifelong friends. Furthermore, I am welcome in many homes in the area. My friends and I will definitely have somewhere to stay during our next surfing trip!


1) Common illnesses suffered by disaster victims include diarrhoea, fevers, skin irritations, respiratory infections and stomach problems.

2) My story has inspired dozens of new recruits to sign up as volunteers.

3) I had to live off my savings, and when they ran out I asked friends and family for loans.

4) Hundreds of lanterns which symbolised the spirits of victims of the tsunami, were released into the sky during a commemoration service.
