AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'[A] riveting novel of Australia's brutal past from master storyteller Peter Watt. It is the tale of two families, the Macintoshes and the Duffys, who are locked in a deadly battle from the moment squatter Donald Macintosh commits an act of barbarity on his Queensland property. Their paths cross in love, death and revenge as both families fight to tame the wild frontier of Australia's north country.'
