I just loved this book - couldn't put it down. Epic, gorgeous tale of two brother dealing with family tragedy, justice, revenge, aborigiens and bloodshed, and guilt. Set in the late 1800's at the edge of the Australian Outback, where life and the environment are harsh, but so beautifully described in this book. This a a great read.
