Summary
"Early in 1822 an illiterate nineteen year-old peasant in County Cork took part in a "Whiteboy" action in the hope of fairer rent and more land for his struggling family. Instead, he was transported to NSW for life. The story that follows will subvert popular notions of the convict experience. Cotter's alliance with a fierce Aboriginal leader conspired with his second "crime" to introduce him to a world understood by few Europeans. The novel points to a haunting moment in Australia's story, when white humility and aboriginal knowledge might have combined to produce a kinder stewardship across the ancient land. Few invaders experienced that fleeting possibility as intimately as Garrett Cotter. This is a story of power and exploitation, if betrayal and uncertain redemption. It offers a vivid reimagining of real events in the far wilds of high country "beyond the limits"." -- Back cover
