The Lost People of Tumbarumba
In 1923, a drover rode his horse into the flooded Murrumbidge River at Gundagai and was drowned. This left his only son Albert, with one hundred and fifty seven cattle, an old wagon, two dogs and precious little else. The young man was seventeen, and then he met a girl and they married. He promised Sarah that droving would be good for them.
Escape from Andaman
The Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal are typical tropical islands, always warm with cooling sea breezes.
None of this mattered to Leasa Easting an Australian widow who was stranded in Port Blair, down on her luck and her money.
She is befriended by Alnos, a government official who gets her a job as an assistant on a research vessel cruising the Indian Ocean.
He too goes along for the cruise.
