AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jim and his family live happily on their remote outback station. Yet, sometimes Jim feels lonely. Then a strange new radio with pedals arrives and Jim's Mum and Dad can send messages to their neighbours. Jim wants to have a go! "When you're older," says Dad. Then something happens that only Jim can deal with. Will he learn how to use the radio in time to save Dad?

'Radio Rescue! is a beautifully illustrated flap book that takes us back to the origins of communication in the outback, with fascinating factual information at the back of the book.' (Publisher's abstract)
