AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'I'm nobody much That's the way Dougy sees himself. Struggling at school, Dougy is quiet. He watches more than he speaks. His siblings, Raymond and Gracey, are the one with the talent- his brother a star footballer and his sister just picked for the state athletic championships. When racial tensions engulf their lonely town in the Australian outback, madness grips and hot-headed men give way to their fears. And waiting in the rising river waters lurks something even more dangerous. Death is stalking Dougy's sister, Gracey, unless he can save her. Can a nobody stand against such forces? Is there more to Dougy than even he knows?' (Publication summary)
