A story about an enduring love and a poisonous family feud which started with a dramatic kidnapping. But, above all, it is the previously untold story of the community of Jackson's Track - an almost utopian community of white people and Aboriginal people living and working happily together in the timber industry from the 1930's onwards. In time Daryl became the unofficial patriarch and protector of the community. In a scandalous and unpublicised episode in the sixties, Jackson's Track was bulldozed at the instigation of local Christian groups and the people who lived there were forced to disperse. Now only Daryl is left to tell the amazing story of Jackson's Track. Written by Australian Story
