In this timeless story, a boy struggles to come to terms with the loneliness of the Australian outback & the ruthlessness of living & working on a remote property.

With Brolga the cattle dog & her pup Rags as his only companions, the boy begins a journey of self-discovery. It is a journey that will take him outside the confines of the Yamboorah cattle station, & into the vast, unrelenting sandhills beyond.

"It is the deeply human & moving narratives of writers like Reginald Ottley, bringing to life an 'ordinary' boy who survives physical & emotional isolation & loneliness of spirit, who can point the way to survival & to ultimate wholeness." Maurice Saxby
