In 1931, Alice, a white station owner, goes riding with her Aboriginal head stockman and friend, Jim. During the course of the afternoon, they come to an agreement about the running and ownership of the property, Ambertrue.
Many years later, in an environment of white paranoia fed by misinformation, Alice’s great nephew Lon finds himself running Ambertrue. When Lon receives a letter announcing a native title claim in the area, he is terrified that his dream of passing the family property on to his son-in-law will be shattered.
Includes an introduction by Professor Henry Reynolds and a foreword by Bob Munn (a Gunggari Native Title claimant).
