'Ruby doesn't like working for the Nortons. She wants to go back to Alice Springs to live with her mum. Will Idris, the Afghan boy who works with the camels, help her to return home?' (National Museum)
The Red Camel was inspired by a photograph of camels and their driver taken by Herbert Basedow in Oodnadatta in 1903. This photograph is now part of the National Museum of Australia's collection.
