The long, straight road from Nyngan to Bourke runs through this tiny village. There's a dead railway line, a general store and a few houses. It is sleepy and often passed by people who barely register its existence. Yet it is here that the body of Helena Kerz, murdered by Jimmy Governor, was brought and buried. A footnote in Australian history, Kerz is part of a story immortalised by the combined efforts of Thomas Keneally and Fred Schepisi. It is the story of Jimmy Governor or, as Keneally preferred to call it, The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith.
