“’The first drops fall; large red mud drops cold on the hot sand’.  So begins another cycle in inland Australia where water plays such a large part in the quiet drama of survival.
In sparse grassland and sand, amid the rocks and scrub and watercourses a kangaroo follows her genetic instincts amid the lushness of rain’s aftermath and allows her dormant embryo to grow.  Nut the forces of nature will pattern her destiny.
Pam Blashki’s moving text and Clifton Pugh’s powerful paintings instil this story of drought and flood with a richness of mood that makes it a completing sequel to Death of a Wombat and Ding King.”
