The adventure of a walkabout through the Australian outback told through the first hand experience of young Josh Howard will have the reader fully vested in the characters from the onset and turning the pages as quick as a kangaroo protecting its young.
Margot Finke weaves her masterful storytelling skills with sibling conflict, lies, a rekindled then broken friendship, and the treachery of surviving the Australian outback into an adventure like no other. The use of the five senses will surely make you feel as if you are traveling along with Josh and his aboriginal friend, Bindi.
Between the disconnect Josh feels toward his older brother, Tom, and the nagging feeling he may not be able to fully trust Bindi, his inner voice whispers to him throughout his walkabout with Bindi. Will Josh realize in time that not everything is as it seems and that he must be open to others cultural beliefs and viewpoints? Find out in Finke’s latest masterpiece, Trial by Walkabout.
