1829, Tasmania. A group of men - convicts, a farmer, two free black traders, and Black Bill, an aboriginal man brought up from childhood as a white man - are led by Jon Batman, a notorious historical figure, on a "roving party." Their purpose is massacre. With promises of freedom, land grants and money, each is willing to risk his life for the prize.

Passing over many miles of tortured country, the roving party searches for Aborigines, taking few prisoners and killing freely, Batman never abandoning the visceral intensity of his hunt. And all the while, Black Bill pursues his personal quarry, the much-feared warrior, Manalargena. A surprisingly beautiful evocation of horror and brutality, The Roving Party is a meditation on the intricacies of human nature at its most raw.
