Walkabout Synopsis

Mary and her young brother Peter are the only survivors of an aircrash in the middle of the Australian outback. Facing death from exhaustion and starvation, they meet an aboriginal boy who helps them to survive, and guides them along their long journey. But a terrible misunderstanding results in a tragedy that neither Mary nor Peter will ever forget . . .

Walkabout Press Reviews

A small classic, pared down to the bare bones. many will not only enjoy it, but long remember it. * New York Times * A deeply-felt book, filled with information about desert flora and fauna. * Times Literary Supplement * Very tender, very touching, and sketched out with no sign of strain. The descriptions of the Australian bush are first-rate. * New Statesman *
