AbstractHistoryArchive Description

When past indiscretions catch up with Charles Redbourne, a minor English landowner, he is propelled from England to Australia. There, his life begins to change dramatically, not least when he meets his host's artistic daughter. But it is on an expedition in search of scientific specimens in the Blue Mountains that events take a terrifying turn. (Publisher's blurb)
