Walking Australia describes the way Americans Charlie and Sally Hull most enjoy seeing the country, meeting the people along the way. From the streets of Sydney, over to the desert of Alice Springs, and on down to Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road, the old mining town of Ballarat and up into the Blue Mountains, the Hulls talk and laugh with Australians and visitors alike as they enjoy the culture differences and beauty of Australia.
Just what is on the other side of that hill up there? Australia? Spain? Italy? Montana? Missouri? Here is a collection of true, short stories of and written by photographer, truck driver, 1935 truck restorer, traveler and author: Charlie P. Hull Jr. as he satisfies his curiosity, encountering cultural and language differences, both here in America and abroad. Mixed through it all are hints in traveling and insights in what is encountered.
This is more than an account of the restoration of a 1935 Ford truck. It is about the life of the man who restored it, working most often beneath the shelter of mere tree branches. It is the telling of the searching, finding and the making of various parts for the truck over the years, as well as the lessons learned along the way. It is the telling of how new life was breathed into the old 35, as well as how eternal life was breathed into the man, Charlie Patrick Hull Jr., by God Almighty.
Charlie knows that God is leading him in His light. But that light looks dark all around him. Knowing that God has not made a mistake, he still wonders how all of these things can possibly work together for his good. And yet, as Charlie learns, it does. See the unfolding plan of a mighty God who loves this man and even allows him to question Him and His ways and continues to work all of these things out for Charlie's good.
