Forrest focuses on black-white relationships, and the changing attitudes and moralities of white Australians when they too became indigenous. In a poverty stricken colony and in a district too vast, the new breed of colonisers wrested a living from a harsh environment and the Aborigines.Opens a new chapter of Australian history.
