Winner of the CBCA 2013 Eve Pownall Award for Information Books.
The Birdsville Track is one of the best-known - and loneliest - tracks in Australia, and for twenty years Tom Kruse was the mailman, battling the heat, floods and mechanical breakdowns in his trusty truck, The Badger. Based on her bestselling book, Mailman of the Birdsville Track, Kristin Weidenbach has written a lively, engaging version for younger readers, capturing the humour, excitement and ingenuity of a classic slice of Australia s fast-vanishing history. Timothy Ide is a South Australian illustrator with a genuine feel for the beauty and hardship of life in the Australian outback.
