AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Leola Vansiltart, owner of the rich property Cooinda, disapproves of her father's marriage to a schoolfellow she knows to have been dishonest, and refuses to allow her to live in the station house. A new stockman and an older one recognise each other from Pentridge, one is the dishonest girl's husband and one a rogue who helped her- and becomes her murderer here. Murder, bigamy, theft, a strong secure heroine, ex-convicts, and an older man's infatuation all feature in this tale. (PB)
