An isolated location and last-minute complications put this rescue in danger!

Sam, Dawson and Emma are taking a road trip with their dad along the dusty Oodnadatta Track. They stop at Farina, an old ghost town full of crumbling buildings – perfect for a game of tip. But as they run through the ruins, their dad seriously injures his leg and it’s up to the kids to find help. They manage to call the Royal Flying Doctor Service, but the situation is so bad it’s up to Dawson to administer first aid to his dad until the aeromedical retrieval team arrives.

About the Author

George Ivanoff

George Ivanoff is a Melbourne author who’s written more than 100 books for kids and teens, including the interactive You Choose series, the RFDS adventures and the Other Worlds series.

As a child, George loved reading interactive books, where he got to make decisions about the direction of the story. He has had more fun plotting and writing the You Choose books than pretty much anything else. And writing the RFDS adventures has opened his eyes to the amazing work done by the Royal Flying Doctor Service. With Other Worlds George has ventured into the realms of science fiction and fantasy, two of his favourite genres, in order to tell stories about ordinary kids facing extraordinary circumstances.

George’s books and stories have been shortlisted for numerous awards and he is thrilled that You Choose: The Treasure of Dead Man’s Cove won the 2015 YABBA for Fiction for Younger Readers.

George drinks too much coffee, eats too much chocolate and watches too much Doctor Who. He has one wife, two children and an uncontrollable imagination.

Praise for Royal Flying Doctor Service 1: Remote Rescue

“The stories are true to life and written in a very accessible way that will suit not-so-strong readers as well as those who are sailing competently through their literary quests. They revolve around the outstanding and unique work of the RFDS and the many patients, emergencies and emotional dramas this wonderful service supports.”

Sue Warren, Just So Stories

“Both books in this new series open with a sense of excitement and intrigue that will grab young readers from the very first page . . . Fantastic adventures with one of our most significant not-for-profit organisations and a reminder of the vastness and remoteness of this geographically unusual country.”

Evie Marshall, Magpies Magazine
