AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Young aboriginal Australian, Toby rode the high plateaus and steep-mountain gorges chasing brumbies, his feats documented and dated about two years before Paterson began writing his iconic poem after visiting the region. Paterson’s only description of ‘the man’ is that he is a ‘stripling’. This story also features Kurnai leader, Bunjileenee; Lauren Tucker, his white consort, who in real life he rescued from a shipwreck; and Angus McMillan who, with his gang of vigilantes, slaughtered hundreds of Snowy River families. It’s a love story; Aboriginals Toby and Louise wrestle with how they might fit into the new Australia of British imperialism. Most of all, it is the story of one young man’s feat of such outstanding horsemanship that, masked, he entered Australian history, literature and legend.' (Source: Proof-it website)
