The adventures of James Baker Waldon continue in Durra Durra, the third book of The Durra Durra Trilogy.
In the previous book, Mutt Mutt Billy, two eventful voyages took place, ten years apart; the first bringing young Luke Reddall to the colony of New South Wales where he eventually becomes a gentleman pastoralist.
The second brought James Waldon, a convict, serving a fourteen-year sentence for a crime of which he was innocent. Once in the colony, James began his new life as an assigned servant to his master, Luke Reddall. Durra Durra continues their story.In England, a young Victoria has ascended the throne; while, at the home of Lady Edwina Soame, in the fashionable City of Bath, she confides to the blacksmith, John Baker, a secret she has guarded with her life, requesting he journey to the far side of the world, in order to reveal to a young man his true identity.Meanwhile, away in the colony of New South Wales, James Baker Waldon is establishing a new farm for his master, Luke Reddall, many miles to the south of Luke’s previous farm, Mutt Mutt Billy. Here James meets someone who will fill an empty place in his heart. Tragedy strikes; land is razed; natives attack; bushrangers strike a disastrous blow, parting friends and loved ones forever. Except for Luke and James the story is far from over; both discovering that good-fortune can sometimes prevail over sadness.
