They say no one from the convict settlement of Sydney Town croosed the steep ranges of Blue Mountains until 1813. But the rascally, quick-witted convict Clancy Fitzgerald did it in 1798, dragging with him the proud, but reluctant, Eliza Phillips.
Faced with constant danger and wrenching isolation, Clancy and Eliza find themselves pale-skinned strangers in a land of ancient traditions and spiritual beliefs. But their destiny is dramatically altered when Clancy discovers a golden road to fortune and makes a triumphant return to white society as a new man - in more ways then one...
Clancy's Crossing is a captivating story of entangled love affairs and high adventure, of man's battle with nature and with himself. Never has this period of Australian history been so vividly and compellingly captured.
