Boss brings to life the differing hardships of pioneer white settlers and native inhabitants of South Australia during the Nineteenth Century. The at times, unwitting, at other times deliberate, displacement of the Boandik and Wiradjuri tribes by the white man is acutely felt by the protagonist Minnie. Minnie's love of pastoralist, John Brewer (Boss), is also a fascinating story of love in a harsh land.
That it is based on a true story, makes Boss all the more moving in its telling.
