From dust jacket Bob Berrell in North Australia: In this rousing adventure-romance, as redolent of Australia as the golden wattle, the author has established a precedent by writing what may be termed the first all-Australian "Western" novel. Full of action, suspense and thrills, it will appeal to readers of all tastes. Scenes are set in the famed Blacks' Spur mountain district in Victoria, and the tale is rich in historical atmosphere and personalities. There are weird happenings in the wilderness, a mysterious outlaw with a wonder horse, and a series of dastardly crimes to be unravelled. Fast-moving and colourful, the book is first-rate entertainment.
