Overview

In an overpopulated and polluted near future, every region of the earth has been explored, organized and tamed, except for one: the mysteriously empty continent of Australia. And Outback Adventure promises to catapult cubicle-dweller Daniel Dyson into the experience of a lifetime...without telling him there may be no return. Dyson and his fellow survivalists set out eagerly to test their mettle against the wilderness. But they don't realize that the game is rigged, and that the ultimate danger is not hunger or thirst, but their fellow human beings.

Editorial Reviews

Outback - Ann Saling
There's hardly a page without its felicitous phrase or naturalistic give-and-take of dialogue. Read it slowly with appreciation for Dietrich's skill with words. Read and reread.
Christian Science Monitor - Lane Hartill
An engaging read with considerable depth and twists. The ingenuity and survivalist mentality of the characters will make you sneak peeks at this one during dinner.
