AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Three siblings from the bush are sent to the big smoke to give their dad some much needed breathing space. Life in Perth has its own challenges and the kids soon flee the suburbs for the shelter of nearby John Forrest National Park, keen to find some elbow room of their own. There, they find that ancient things are lurking beneath the rocks, stirred up by the relentless heat of summer; things that are jealous of those that walk upon them; things that do not ever want to let them leave.

'A story of family, of love and of hope; of ancient spirits and fables brought to life; of three kids who stick together through thick and through thin. Each of them must come to terms with who they are as they face the insidious thing that stalks them unseen from the shadows. Most of all, they must remember the lesson from their elders: if you're walking in the bush and you feel someone or something looking over your shoulder don't stop, don't turn around and whatever you do, keep your eyes down and don't ever look up.'
