Harry has lost a strip of land between his station and the river –quite legitimately- to a ‘free selector’ called Giles Medlicot who has used it to construct a sugar plantation and mill. Because of this, relations are frosty between the two men. Harry’s imperiousness has made him enemies, amongst them a disreputable family of neighbouring cattle farmers, the Brownbies. On Christmas Eve, two of Harry’s disgruntled former employees- with the aid of the Brownbies – deliberately start a fire on his land. Harry only has his aboriginal hand Jacko to help him avert disaster for his station, until Giles Medlicot lends his support.
