In the 1850s Australia was a land of fertile promise and bitter truths, a wilderness that could only be tamed by proud men and passionate women like the Broomes and Tempests. It was also a land with a secret -- a secret that would be revealed with the discovery of gold in the rugged hills and desolate outback.
With that discovery Australia became a mecca for men like Luke Murphy -- questing, adventurous, torn between the lure of wealth and the dictates of his heart. And for men like Jasper Morgan -- unscrupulous brigands for whom gold was a hunger so consuming, it justified every excess, every savagery, every sin.
