Three Kadimakara children are washed up in the land of the Dingo People. the Dingo People want to help them find their way home and lead Jadianta, Lande and Jalmor to the river. Suddenly a crocodile rears up and takes one of the Dingo children. Jadianta, Lande and Jalmor survive and are now in the land of the Magpie Goose. It has been suggested by scientists that during the Ice Age, the Gulf of Carpentaria dried up forming a land bridge between Australia and New Guinea. Aboriginal oral history also recalls a huge shallow lake; the aquatic life, people and events forming part of the legends. Percy trezise has told many stories about these legends.

This book vividly depicts cannibalism, a vicious attack by a dingo and female abduction. It is completely unsuitable for young children who, I suspect, are the target audience. They are likely to find it frightening. Moreover, it conveys the idea that Indigenous people were cannibals which almost certainly they were not. I have wasted my money.
