They say no one from the convict settlement of Sydney Town crossed the steep ranges of the Blue Mountains until 1813. But the quick-witted convict Clancy Fitzgerald did it in 1798, dragging with him the proud - but reluctant - Eliza Philips. Faced with constant danger and wrenching isolation, Clancy and Eliza found themselves pale-skinned strangers in a land of ancient traditions and spiritual beliefs.

Having lived in the Lithgow area for over 20 years, I could picture the places Clancy was discovering. The next time I travel The Bells Line of Road, I will view Mt Tomah with knowing smile!
