AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is the story of two families - branches of the Solomons - transported to an alien land, both of whom eventually grow rich and powerful but who, through three generations, never for one moment relinquish their hatred for each other. It is also the story of Australia from the beginning until Australia came of age as a nation.' (Publication summary)
