After his two closest cousins die mysteriously, dreamy young Ned finds himself the last remaining heir to a vast outback cattle empire.
He has to learn quickly to stand on his feet. Ambitious relatives are staking their own claim to his enormous land-holdings and the communities that live on them.
He is not alone. Using Aboriginal magic and strength of character his family maintain the status quo and restore their lineage, but at great personal cost. Ned Collins inherits far more than property and wealth.
