About the Book

The book is a reflection of the Authors childhood experiences. The Bunyip was reported to have been sighted around the Countryside of NSW but to this date has always evaded capture. No one actually refutes the creatures' existence, but no one has managed to actually capture it on film. The story is one of Social integration, both of the Aboriginal Boy and that of an Irish Immigrant family. The Chinese Man and his daughter add a touch of humour with his struggle to master the English language and his resolve to find a place in a society of scoundrels and Bullies. The book gives hope to the downtrodden and those afflicted with many of societies problems.It is a story of hope and reconciliation.
