'Cast upon his own wits and fortune in the raw Australian colony, Vinegar Hill is the story of Pollitt's development from naive impulsiveness to hard-earned maturity. His relationships with the Brannans, with eccentric physician George Rowlick, with the unbalanced young widow Elizabeth Compact - all are based on the simple passion of his nature, and all demand love, allegiance, courage and suffering.'
