Summary
In the 1930s, 19-year-old Dan Leahy and his brother Mick, became the first white men to walk into the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Their arrival in search of gold brought cataclysmic change. Before long, the Leahys' gold mine had become the centre of a new outpost in the Australian colony. But, unlike other colonialists, Dan Leahy openly embraced local custom. Uncaring of scandal, he raised a family of 10 children from three village wives. Today, 30 years after Australia gave Papua New Guinea its independence, his descendants still call the Highlands their home. This is the story of a unique colonial legacy and a family that must still bridge the divide between two very different worlds.-- website
