This book covers every aspect of the history of the Lower Blackwood district of W.A. prior to the 1980s.

It tells of the explorers of the area between the 1820s and 1850s, of the struggles of the pastoralists-squatters who followed them, in protecting their herds from marauding Aborigines, dingoes and poison plants, of police hunts for absconding convicts and Aboriginal lawbreakers, and with the introduction of convict labour into the district, the establishment of a Police station and post office in the 1870s that lead to the development of the nucleus of the township that was to become Nannup.
