About the Author
Anthony Eaton is a novelist who spent six weeks traveling to and from Casey Antarctic Station, in Wilkes land, Antarctica. During that voyage, he became both enchanted and cowed by the power and beauty of Antarctica, and the impact that it has on the minds and hearts of every man or woman who is lucky enough to experience it. He is also the winner of the 2006 Ena Noel Award bestowed by IBBY (International Board of Books for Young People).

"Bookseller + Publisher"" ""A New Kind of Dreaming" makes you think about the crime and injustice that go unpunished in our world today. It is an excellent tale I guarantee that you will find it very difficult to put this novel away." "Courier-Mail"" "A New Kind of Dreaming makes you think about the crime and injustice that go unpunished in our world today. It is an excellent tale ... I guarantee that you will find it very difficult to put this novel away." --Courier-Mail "Eaton succeeds in establishing a terrific atmosphere, very vividly evoking life in the hot dusty town claustrophobically sandwiched between sea and desert. His prose is tight, the narrative thrust strong and convincing in its exploration of the continuing legacy of the past." --Canberra Times "Eaton has created an unputdownable book ... this is an enthralling story for teenage readers, maintaining a great deal of anticipation, excitement and pace. A well-told and beautifully written tale." --Bookseller + Publisher
