Running from the agony of betrayal, John McDouall Stuart sails across the globe to search for solace in the arms of a foreign, undiscovered land. But he will find no peace there, for as he tries to cross the vast Australian interior, Stuart is pitted against a brutal and merciless adversary that will push him to the very brink of his existence rather than yield to his challenge.In mid-nineteenth century Australia, the cross-continent race hits fever pitch and leading the South Australian charge is a tiny Scotsman willing to sacrifice everything he has to achieve his goal. But in the fight for colonial ascendancy, friendship, courage, love and betrayal will determine who wins the race to the northern coast.Sigley knows how to tell an Aussie history story packed full of adventure and excitement – you can’t wait to turn to the next page!’ — John Morrow’s Pick of the Week.
