AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Norah is now 14.  She, Jim and Wally do their best to put up with Cecil, the supercilious 19 year-old cousin from town who has come to stay at Billabong for the Christmas holidays.  He tries to show off to his Bush relatives with his disdainful city airs but the results are invariably disastrous and highly amusing until he does the unforgiveable and takes Norah’s much-loved pony for a wild ride.' (Publication summary)
