1930?s rural Australia. Baddar, a wild hearted 7 years old would tell you he is special. The grandchild of the last Afghan cameleer and his wife, Rose, an aboriginal woman, Baddar knew he was destined for more. Bored of small town life and overwhelmed by childlike curiosity.

Desperate to gain the respect of both his families, Baddar often finds himself conflicted on his identity. His struggle with his dual heritage appears to be just some of the reasoning behind his

rebellious nature as he combats with the ideas of being identified as either a ?Tribesman? or a?Cameleer?. As Baddar and his friends struggle to find their places in Willow Vale, their need for

adventure always lands them in tremendous trouble, which never pleases their families.

But, when trouble comes to Willow Vale in the form of a devastating bushfire that threatens to destroy their town, it?s the children of Willow Vale Rural School that may be the only ones who can save the town and find their places within the community?

I actually purchased this from another source. How I loved this story. It's full of excitement and adventure plus it’s an instrumental learning tool for the young. This story also gives invaluable information on safety first and why you don’t go off on your own in the bush or touch creatures on the beach or anywhere when you don’t know the repercussions. It also talks of camels and the cameleers with an explanation of what they do and how. I learned much that I didn’t know. Another significant point reflected throughout is the non-discrimination between people of different cultures and religions. As a child of the fifties, I can recall so much of what I read here, and it brought back many happy memories. Children today don’t enjoy much of what we once did, and for that reason alone this book belongs in school libraries to give a taste of a time long passed.
