"This is a story that will make strong appeal to all who love Australia and have abiding faith in its destiny. The characters in it are real people who live and move and play their parts amidst scenes familiar to all of us who know something of the real Australia outside our crowded cities. It takes the reader through scenes of the pioneering days of the Murray River; the gold-rush to Western Australia and on to the days of the Great War. The story tells of John Webster, who, like so many of his countrymen, leaves the peace and happiness of his home to fight for his country and his loved ones."
