An epic true story of greed, power and a desire for legacy from an acclaimed Australian storyteller.
July 2014, a lonely road at twilight outside Croppa Creek, New South Wales: 80-year-old farmer Ian Turnbull takes out a .22 and shoots environmental officer Glen Turner in the back.
On one side, a farmer hoping to secure his family’s wealth on the richest agricultural soil in the country. On the other, his obsession: the government man trying to apply environmental laws.
The brutal killing of Glen Turner splits open the story of our place on this land. Is our time on this soil a tale of tragedy or triumph - are we reaping what we’ve sown? Do we owe protection to the land, or does it owe us a living? And what happens when, in pursuit of a legacy, a man creates terrible consequences?
Kate Holden brings her discerning eye to a gripping tale of law, land and inheritance. It is the story of Australia.

Great recount! Narrator was excellent!
The lead up to the murder of Glen Turner by Ian Turnbull was riveting in itself, but the authors research and recounting of the history of land management in Australia was adeptly woven into the events that took place.
This was an excellent narrative, made even more engaging by the narrator’s wonderful rendition of the broad range of accents, reflecting the culture of historical contributors and the personality of the farming community. Truly engaging.
