A high-octane adventure series for children written in partnership with the Royal Flying Doctor Service
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.

Reviews

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

Recommended. George Ivanoff's outback adventure series have been written in collaboration with the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Part of the purchase proceeds support this valuable aeromedical and primary health care provider. Each stand alone story is situated in a real outback or country location with a map, coordinates and information about the area's history and geography included. Marie Pena's dark covers and inside illustrations set the tone for these dramatic stories. The author has included factual information that describes the patient's injuries, symptoms and treatments, this adds to the realism of the narrative.

Rhyllis Bignell, ReadPlus

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.
