Overview

Nobody knows why the founder of Namaga made his suicidal dive on a wreck out to sea from the settlement. A civil engineer, his son Andrew returns to build the jetty his father designed to make the town a viable port. The financier who provided equipment for its construction arrives on his liner with daughter, Adelaide, who is engaged to Frederick Carnivon - presently exploring what lies inland. Adelaide's father must leave but she lingers to await her fiance's return from the wilds. His expedition has been reduced to a grim trek over harsh terrain while pursued by desert warriors who want him dead.
In Namaga,an old man is bent on its destruction. Fierce passions,never far from the surface,and dramatic events drive Adelaide and Andrew into each others arms as they resolve the mystery of his father's death and stumble on the fate of the town's original inhabitants before they are caught up in a desperate bid for survival.

Boring at times. Confusing. Easy to lose track if what was going on.
