Lachlan McKenzie: A man who rejects his staid upbringing to become a dangerous outlaw; who tempts death time and again to be with the mother of his child.
Gil Tyler: A courageous dreamer who fights the brutal greed of rich landowners and risks his soul for the love of a passionate, innocent girl.
Louisa Wakefield: A sheltered young beauty whose romantic illusions are shattered when she pledges her heart to her father's most bitter enemy.
