    The Winter Road
    A Story of Legacy, Land and a Killing at Croppa Creek
    On a country road in Croppa Creek, farmer Ian Turnbull faced environmental officer Glen Turner. What happened next shocked Australia.<br/>An epic true story of greed, power and a desire for legacy from an acclaimed Australian storyteller.<br/><br/>July 2014, a lonely road at twilight outside Croppa Creek, New South Wales: 80-year-old farmer Ian Turnbull takes out a .22 and shoots environmental officer Glen Turner in the back.<br/><br/>On one side, a farmer hoping to secure his family's wealth on the richest agricultural soil in the country. On the other, his obsession: the government man trying to apply environmental laws. <br/><br/>The brutal killing of Glen Turner splits open the story of our place on this land. Is our time on this soil a tale of tragedy or triumph - are we reaping what we've sown? Do we owe protection to the land, or does it owe us a living? And what happens when, in pursuit of a legacy, a man creates terrible consequences? <br/><br/>Kate Holden brings her discerning eye to a gripping tale of law, land and inheritance. It is the story of Australia.
