Bitter enemies in a small town. Political rivals caught in a web of lies. This is the true story and gripping account of Horace Dean's rise in politics in South Australia in the 1850s. George Fife Angas arrived in South Australia in 1851, feted as the Father and Founder of South Australia, and the prime mover of German immigration to the Colony. The American-born Horace Dean had arrived in the Colony of South Australia in 1849, and began a medical practice in Angaston. He also became a Stipendiary Magistrate of high repute, and the first Mayor of Angaston. Individually, George and Horace were extremely talented but with their own personal insecurities. Both had egos to match their talent; both were abnormally sensitive about the reputation they perceived they enjoyed; both needed to dominate those around them. And each possessed a remarkable tenacity of purpose.
