AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The children of the Kadimakara People are lost - swept away from their home by a great storm. Jadianta, Lande and Jalmor have faced fierce crocodiles, giant goannas and marsupial lions. Leaving the land of the Emu People, they have a new travelling companion--a girl of the Woomera clan. To continue their journey home and return Wongabel to her people, they must pass through the lands of the Snake men and Red Kangaroo people--if they are caught, will they be killed or enslaved. (Blurb from back cover).
