Summary

"Tom Wills is the young man with at least two, and possibly four, different versions of Australian history running through his head: (blackfeller, whitefeller, convict, squatter and all the possible variations thereof). No-one in his time understood him. How could they? He didn't understand himself. All he knew was that when he wass out there, on the sports field, he was himself." --- Back cover.
