AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In the earliest years of Australian settlement, Elizabeth Harrington, the daughter of the colony's judge advocate, helps a group of convict women escape from the brutality and repeated rape that they endure at the hands of their gaolers. They escape into the bush, where a young Aboriginal woman teaches them to adapt, and form a new 'tribe,' living off the land without men. However, the troopers, led by Elizabeth's spurned fiancée, come after them.
