This is the authentic story of the first abortive settlement on the West Tamar, merging in the background history of some convicts and free settlers whose descendants are still in the area. It highlights their encounters with aborigines and bushrangers, and of their efforts to subdue the land. In a humorous and easy-to-read style it describes the Beaconsfield Gold Rush and the orcharding boom which affected district after district and brought a new wave of settlers to join the early settlers of the West Tamar.
