distant field of murder tells the story of a frontier -- south-western Victoria during the 1830s and 1840s. In vivid detail it describes how one culture, that of the original possessors of the land, responded to the catastrophe visited upon it by the white settlers. It reveals the complexity of the settlement process, the choices confronting the newcomers as they struggled to establish themselves. It expresses the dilemmas faced by the colonial administration attempting to maintain a fragile peace.
