'"Easy Money Macdonald", the educated, athletic, strong-minded son of a wealthy squatter, falls in love with a lovely singer and dancer on the stage, and thus finds he has offended his proud father, who gives him the alternative of breaking the engagement or being disinherited. Macdonald does not hesitate. There is too much of the fighter in him for that, but as he is penniless without his father's aid he must find a way lo make money for himself, and as Agnes, the singer, is used to luxury, he cannot see bright prospects in an overseer's job on a station as the only means of supporting her, or a clerkship in some city office where his knowledge of stock would be an advantage.

'So he casts about for an avenue to quick wealth, accepts an offer to capitalise his skill as an amateur boxer by turning professional, and makes his plans to plunge the whole of his winnings from his title bout on his half brumby racehorse in a bold bid for a fortune.'
