Synopsis

A refreshing, modern story about a child's renewed love of the Australian bushLike most young boys, Sam loves DVDs, iPods, and iPhones. He hates the outdoors, and would be happy if it all disappeared. Then he goes to stay with his Nanna who loves the outdoors and goes for long walks in the Australian bush. Through storytelling, Nanna begins to teach Sam about the bush: its shelter, food, and water. "There’s plenty of food in the bush," she explains to a bored Sam and his grumbling stomach. Soon, Sam realizes through his own journey that the bush has an abundance of good things to offer—including adventure. Brimming with themes that will promote discussion among young readers, the ideas explored include journeys, the environment, storytelling, aboriginal knowledge of the bush, and intergenerational understanding.Sally Morgan and Ezekiel Kwaymullina are a mother-and-son team. They descend from the Palku people of the Pilbara, in the north-west of Western Australia.
