A woman becomes obsessed with the story of a long-dead colonial pioneer, and her research becomes a way of coming to terms with her own past.

Researching in the archives Belle discovers the long-dead Gaden Lockyer, a colonial pioneer in Jericho Flats, and soon becomes obsessed. Belle's quest for Lockyer is her way of coming to terms with the past - her mother, 'a drummer in her own all-women's group'; her absent American father; and her ineffectual husband, Seb.

In Reaching Tin River, Thea Astley's satire is at its sharpest and most entertaining.

Industry Reviews

`Dazzling imagery on every page...Beautifully written.' * Publishers Weekly *
`Intelligent, fresh, and new.' * Kirkus Reviews *
`How lucidly Ms. Astley evokes for us Australia's rough pioneer history and Belle's love for it...You will like this journey, I promise, and when it is over you will wish it weren't, and you will feel cross and want from Ms. Astley much, much more.' * New York Times *
