Fear and faith collide when a life-altering event forces twelve-year-old Micaylah Thompson to travel halfway around the world to the second most inhospitable place on the planet: the Australian outback. There she must trust her Uncle Thad and Aunt Sarah, relatives she barely knows, who are missionaries to Aboriginal tribes in the heart of the Northern Territory. Join Kumquat, an Australian shepherd who accompanies Micaylah on her journey, as she explores the wonders of a land that time seems to have forgotten. This is her story of faith, which deepens and grows, touching those around her during her adventure in the Never Never.

About the Author

Early years saw the author growing up in a blended family and raised as an atheist. Traveling to both West and East Germany as a teenager—and almost getting arrested there—left an indelible mark on his very impressionable mind. He came to faith while serving in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam conflict. After working in management, he pursued a career in transportation, ultimately receiving a commercial driver’s license. During his time as a long-haul driver, he trained new drivers while assisting his employer with a program geared to educate young minds about the United States. As one of many who participated in the program, when the company was honored by their local school district with an award, the keynote speaker mentioned how his efforts had motivated and encouraged her with school. In his spare time, he reads, explores cultures, and cares for his spouse, puppy, and cat.
