'It is almost time; Bullocky must place his hand upon the shoulder of the man in the family, who will succeed him as the Mack. That man, unquestioned and unchallenged will be the leader of the family, his authority absolute. Bullocky had sired two sons; fate had taken his older boy from him in a terrible car smash, Peacey crippled, Birdie into a locked ward. Now he is waiting for Peacey to come back in and step up to the mark and claim that mantle that is rightfully his. Time is pressing, he and Nanna must return to the tribal country and "walk the line" to safeguard the sacred sites. But before he can go, Bullocky knows that he must ensure the succession and stabilize his family network. Birdie must come out of the hospital, Corowa must settle down and Peacey must become the man that they all knew he could be.' Source: http://www.jwcoca.qld.gov.au/ (Sighted 14/02/2007).
