Transported: A Pioneer's Story

Based on the true life of George Smith, the story tells how he turned to crime, had his death sentence commuted to life in the colonies and rose from humble beginnings to become a pioneer and wealthy Australian land-owner. Arriving in the colony as a naive youth, he learns to handle cattle and thrive in the lonely harsh countryside, dealing with the Aboriginal natives in their first contact with white people. Granted his freedom for help in catching a murderous outlaw, he begins to dream the unthinkable, owning land. When a fire sweeps the countryside, he saves the local tribal head and is granted in return the hand of the chief's daughter. By chance George finds a way to make money and the opportunity to fulfil his dream. His native wife dies shortly after delivering their fifth child and George travels overland to Sydney seeking a housekeeper. Attracted to an Irish woman, he proposes and she accepts, returning with him to the outer district. Gradually the children accept her as their mother and the now wealthy family starts to claim respectability.
