Man of Two Tribes

by Arthur Upfield

ISBN 1 875989 33 1


Published July 1998



Set in a Nullabor Plain and in the caves beneath it, this has been described as one of the strongest of Upfield's novels. Bony discovers a group of people imprisoned in the extensive limestone caves beneath the plain and has to lead them through the wilderness and back to white civilisation, pursued by various enemies. The task requires its hero to draw on both his Aboriginal and European heritages. The descriptions of Aboriginal culture and landscape are outstanding.

Detective Bony returns in Upfield's Death of a Lake.
