Summary
The forgotten history of Australia's 'Ghan' cameleers -- predominantly Muslim and Sikh men from India, Afghanistan and Persia -- who traversed the nation's vast desert interior, forming unique bonds with local Aboriginal people. To escape a harsh existence and return home, a young Afghan cameleer, partners with a mysterious bushman on the run with two 400-oz Crown-marked gold bars. Together the unlikely pair must outwit a zealous police sergeant and his troopers in a race to reach a secret furnace -- the one place where they can safely reset the bars to remove the mark of the Crown
