The splendid and limitless horizons of the dry outback held blessings and curses, and the blessings were far between.
Cole and Samantha Sloan have enjoyed several years of steady prosperity and their four children are reaching adolescence. Colin, the eldest son, has always been one to question everything and always has been ready for adventure. Approaching full independence, Colin wants out from under his parents' standards and expectations.
East of Outback is the quest of Colin Sloan as he finds his way into the responsibilities of manhood and the outback of Australia. Venturing out on his own, Colin works the gold mines of Kalgoorlie, shears sheep in the Darling River country and at times simply tries to survive. But he's not prepared to take on the responsibility for his younger sister, headstrong Hannah. Reluctantly, he must take her back home.
Embarking on an odyssey of discovery, little does he know the journey will become a search for meaning.
