Post Historical novel based on a true story
My latest novel is based on the true story of 21-year-old William McDonald who travelled from the Highlands of Scotland in 1885 to find a new life in Australia. He had dreams of owning a sugar plantation and worked hard learning the industry but he realised that it would take a long time to earn enough money to buy his own land if he continued to work for labourer's wages. He learned that he could make big money walking horses overland to the sugar plantations in the north of the colony of Queensland in Ayr and Mackay, and further inland to the gold mines of Charters Towers. He made a lot of money but he didn't get the chance to spend it. William disappeared and died in bizarre circumstances. This is the story of his life - and his death. It is an adventure, a step back to a time when bushrangers roamed the sparsely populated continent, and when relationships between English settlers and the Indigenous people were at an all time low.
