General Note: "First published in Australian in 2015 by Picador, an imprint of Pan Macmillan Australia Pty Ltd."
Summary, etc.: Salt Creek is set in the Coorong in the 1850s: a remote, beautiful and inhospitable coastal region in the new province of South Australia, which has been opened to graziers willing to chance their luck. Among them are Stanton Finch and his family, including sixteen-year-old Hester Finch. Once wealthy political activists, the Finch family has fallen on hard times. Cut adrift from the polite society they were raised to be part of, Hester and her siblings make connections where they can: with the travellers passing along the nearby stock route -- among them a young artist, Charles -- and the Ngarrindjeri people they have dispossessed.
