"A lonely stretch of Transcontinental railway in the mulga country that approaches the barren wastes of the almost inhabited.  Nullarbor Plain is maintained by a tough gang of fettlers - the Wayward Gang.
Life in a fettlers' camp is no picnic.  The conditions are such that only the brawny non-conformists and the unskilled misfits can be recruited.  Many of them are little more than drifters attracted perhaps by the knowledge that they can't so easily "blow" their wages so far from the temptations of the city."
