'Based on the life of Hamilton Hume, this novel is the story of a 'currency lad' who became a great Australian explorer and pioneer. It brings him to life as a man - brave, upright, and capable. And it tells of his love for Elizabeth Dight, and how she waited for him until he was ready to give up the challenges and hardships of exploring. No Boundary Fence transforms Hume from a name in history to a living personality.' (Publisher's blurb).
