Summary

“Jim Gumm is an ex-infantryman and ex-con, a devoted leading-manservant who’s never had his own way or love until Eliza Batman, the wife of his brutal and land-obsessed boss. An infamous treaty bring Jim to the shores of Port Phillip where a Wildman walks into camp. As the unknown Wildman struggles with the loss of his daughter and wife, he becomes Buckley again for settlers who consider him a godsend for their treaty. To Jim, how Buckley has lived a free lifetime with the blacks is a tempting mystery. William Buckley was Victoria’s first conciliator and long-term European resident; Jim Gumm was one of Melbourne’s first residents.”--Back cover.
