Salt Creek, 1855, lies at the far reaches of the remote coastal region, the Coorong, in the new province of South Australia. The area, just opened to graziers willing to chance their luck, becomes home to Stanton Finch and his large family, including fifteen-year-old Hester. Cut adrift from the polite society they were raised to be part of, Hester and her siblings make connections where they can: with the few travellers that pass along the nearby stock route and the Ngarrindjeri people they have dispossessed and Tully, an Aboriginal boy becomes part of the family. Stanton's attempts to farm the harsh landscape brings ruin to the Ngarrindjeri people's homes and livelihoods, and unleashs a chain of events that will tear the family apart.
