“This is a story of the Big Country that lies around and beyond the Darling River in the far west of New South Wales.  There, in the year 1874, a beautiful half-caste girl, Jenny Courage, is searching for her father, the white man who abandoned her mother and on whom she means to be revenged.  Jenny works first as a stewardess on a river steamer, where she meets the Inseparables, three drovers who know the country as few other men do.  They are destined to see more of each other, for at Bourke they fall in with the indomitable Martha Gubby, who has decided to become a station-owner in her old age, and who takes the drovers into partnership and engages Jenny as housekeeper.”
