Tracking North




Escape to one of the most remote corners of our breathtaking country with this highly anticipated new novel from the bestselling author of Mallee Sky and Wildhorse Creek, Kerry McGinnis. 

'Vividly transports you to the Gulf Country … settle in for a really enjoyable read.' Susan Duncan, bestselling author of Salvation Creek
Kelly Roberts finds refuge in the rugged and remote cattle country of northern Australia, but when tragedy strikes she is forced to find a new life for herself and her children outside of Rainsford Station.
She retreats to the family's only asset – a freehold block of land owned jointly by her eccentric father-in-law, Quinn. In the valley at Evergreen Springs, Quinn hopes the fractured family might all come together to start over again.
Life in Queensland's far north is wildly unpredictable, with daily challenges and the wet season, in all its wild majesty, to survive. But when twelve-year-old Rob makes the gruesome discovery of a dead body in the valley, real peril comes far too close to home.
Tracking North is a beautiful family story about life in the stunning Gulf Country, one of the world's most unique and fascinating places.
'McGinnis has an assured style as an evocative, ripper yarn spinner.' The Age
'McGinnis has the eye of a painter; she writes as she sees and the land comes alive.' Weekend Australian
