Andy Watson, the owner of the property, traces the events of Williams death to the shearers strikes of 1891 and 1894 and to the burning of the paddlesteamer Rodney. Tracking down the culprits involves a voyage to England and, upon his return, a court case in Bathurst. Lack of conclusive evidence leads to an unsatisfactory decision, but the matter is finally resolved on the banks of the Darling River near the remains of the Rodney.

A LIGHT IN THE WEST The Public Instruction Act of 1880 established many new schools in New South Wales. Mary Simpson is appointed to the one teacher school at Gontentia in the far west. The tale describes her journey, the events of the opening of the school, and Marys first six months as the teacher. A light in the west is a tribute to the hundreds of teachers who, since 1880, have served with distinction in one teacher schools.
