Summary Note In the 1860's in the Colony of Victoria, Tabu an aborigine goes `walkabout' after a violent tribal fight during which his brother is killed. He rescues the wife of a drover/​farmer - Michael, who is an escaped Convict. He hires Tabu, to help him drove sheep into the mainly unexplored northern districts of Victoria to the Murray River. Only a few hardy explorers and drovers had previously been through this country when bringing stock overland from Sydney to Melbourne. Their droving encounters many difficulties, crossing several rivers, bushfire, floods, theft of sheep and aborigine conflict. Parallel family stories involve an aborigine battle, wild dog attacks, water rights and attempted piracy. The Novel also includes other tales involving their family's trial and tribulations, bordering on truth and fiction.
