AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An action packed novel set in North Queensland, based on a true story. A boy and girl are on the run, chased by the police who want to take them from their mother. Their father, escaped from prison, is rallying local tribes for full scale warfare. An excellent account of the interactions between Indigenous people and white settlers.' (Source: TROVE)
