Far and Away

Far and Away is a historical fiction novel adapted by Sonja Massie from the dramatic 1992 movie scripted by Howard and Bob Dolman. The novelization allows readers to explore the story in a different way from the film. These discussion questions are based solely on the novel, so your students do not need to have seen the film. However, a short section of optional questions let students who have seen the film compare it and the novel's treatment of the characters, themes, and events.
