Do you dare stick up for your mates? Ride a horse at breakneck speed? Risk your life for freedom? Within the rough and ready frontier settlement of Moreton Bay (which later became the city of Brisbane), Toby and his mates roam free, and linger at the fringes of the grown-up world. They are particularly interested in horse racing. But it's a dangerous world, and when Toby decides to take part in a race through the streets, he doesn't realize it will be a matter of life and death.
