"Bottlebrush Barn, the home of the Pine family, lies halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide.  A peaceful place of cattle ad sheep, possums and unusual pets, pasture and scrub, the farm is linked to the township of Upper Gumbowie by a winding road that skirts the uncleared Big Scrub.  Along the road a school bus lollops and lurches, carrying children of the district - the three young Pines, Don and Debbie Dobson, "Burp" Heaslip, and others - to school.
It is the story of the fearful February Dragon - the bushfire - and how, unleashed by the stupidity or the arrogant carelessness of people such as Aunt Hester, it brings tragedy to hundreds of innocent victims every year."
