Dedication
First words
We of the Never-Never
Chapter 1 - The Unknown Woman : To begin somewhere near the beginning, the Maluka - better known at that time as the new Boss for the Elsey - and I, his "missus", were at Darwin in the Northern Territory, waiting for the train that was to take us just as far as it could - one hundred and fifty miles - on our way to the Never-Never.

The little black princess
Chapter 1 - Bett-Bett : Bett-Bett must have been a princess, for she was a king's neice; and, if that does not make a princess of anyone, it ought to do so.
