AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The children Kutabah, Warabal and Bidu travel from their home to the lush rainforests of the Queensland Tablelands. This is their Nana’s land—the abundant rainforest—so far known only to them through her colourful stories. The Elders test Kutabah and Warabal as they travel with their younger brother, Bidu, and begin their transition into the adult world.' (Source: Publisher's website)
