Publisher's Summary

In 1936, Daryl Tonkin and his brother, Harry, leave home in search of adventure. They find themselves in West Gippsland, Victoria, and set up a timber mill at Jackson's Track - a dreamtime place, a place that was paradise. A bushman dedicated to his work, Daryl discovers happiness there - and unexpectedly falls in love. But Daryl is white and Euphie is black, and neither of them is prepared for the conflict their forbidden love ignites. This spellbinding memoir recaptures a community and a way of life now vanished from sight.

A great Australian story of the bush

This was a great story, captivating from start to end - a great tale if a bushman, his way of life, the characters that weave in and out of his life, and an important story of aboriginal Australians and their experiences in this time and place.
