KITTENS IN THE EMU FIELD
Red dust covered everything – even the cracked window pane – between Jonny Mackay and the distant horizon where sunlight flashed on the vehicles moving up to the army camp between him and his destination. Jonny squinted, using his thick eyelashes as a sunscreen, his Aboriginal tracking skills lost in this unfamiliar landscape. He turned to the older man beside him. “Plenty army trucks moving on the road.”
The older man nodded. He was from a different tribe to Jonny, spoke little English and his Abo dialect was completely foreign. But at least he was local, or had been.
