A novel of passion and brooding suspense, Watching the Climbers on the Mountain is set in the remote Central Highlands of Queensland. It is the story of Ward Rankin, the disaffected station owner, and Ida, his unhappy wife, who sees the solution to her problems in her love for the young English stockman Robert Crofts, whose arrival on the station changes their lives forever. And against the backdrop of heat, torrential rain and the strange and lonely landscape, rises Mt Mooloolong, the scene of the novel's thrilling conclusion.
