Epigraph
Dedication
To the 'Battlers'

I wonder where they are now?
They will never read this, never know it is written.
Somewhere a dirty crew of vagabonds, 
Blasphemous, generous, cunning and friendly,
Travels the track; and wherever it takes them,
Part of me follows.
First words
If Snow had taken the road through Belburra, instead of the track through Currawong, his whole life would have run a different course.
