'Stacey Dawson, only son of a wealthy cattle king, decides to give up all the advantages of wealth and social position to carve out a career for himself in the real Australia. "I believe," he says, "that love laughs at locksmiths, and all that beautiful stuff you read about in books. I believe in knights and the rescuing of lovely ladies from duress vile: in the slaying of dragons, and the crusade for the honour of a ladye fair, with her veil in your helmet and her colours on your lance. I'm romantic, and I don't care who knows it. I refuse to allow two middle-aged people to muck up my life." His adventures In the outback provide many a thrill.'
