'Set in the range country of northern Queensland in the mid-1930s, Spirit Man is the gripping story of the aboriginal, Jacko Cobbett, the "spirit man" whom civilisation has never managed to tame, and in whom the old beliefs in magic remain alive like a smouldering fire.  It is the story of the Archer family, whose tranquil, ordered life is abruptly shattered by the sudden appearance of Jacko on their property one stormy night.  And it is the story of the young boy, Simon Archer, whose admiration for the wild black man stands in sharp contrast to the attitudes that surround him.'
