Publisher's Summary

Wrested from the primordial Australian wilderness, Tibooburra Station has taken the blood, sweat, and tears of generations of Kerricks and given them a magnificent heritage in return. But now the golden legacy of the outback station is threatened by the disappearance of the young boy who will one day inherit it all.

Fleeing the pain of being abandoned by his mother, eight-year-old Jeremy Kerrick wanders the rough-and-ready gold towns of the frontier and comes to manhood among the primitive Aborigines of the vast, unexplored interior. At one with the land, he draws from it an indomitable strength that enables him to win the woman of his dreams. Together, they will meet the challenge of the outback or die trying.

Aussie Accent

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the story but these books should be read by an Aussie... somebody with a REAL Australian accent. It would have been so much better.

Fantastic Story BUT Narrator spoils it

A great story of early Australia and the Aboriginal interaction between tens of thousands of years of history, and the new settlers of New South Wales. A very enrapturing story.

BUT......

The American narrator mispronouncing basic Australian names is so painfull that it destroyed a great novel.
The worst was prounouncing an Emu as an "E-moo"

Australian Novels should be read by Australian Narrators !
