Historian Henry Reynolds examines the historical background of and model for Keneally's novel and focuses on four things: "to outline the general background to race relations in rural Australia in the late nineteenth century, to examine the significance of Jimmy Governor's career, to note public reaction to it, and finally to consider the version of the events depicted in Keneally's novel" (14).
