A refreshing, modern story about a child's renewed love of the Australian bush

Like most young boys, Sam loves DVDs, iPods, and iPhones. He hates the outdoors, and would be happy if it all disappeared. Then he goes to stay with his Nanna who loves the outdoors and goes for long walks in the Australian bush. Through storytelling, Nanna begins to teach Sam about the bush: its shelter, food, and water. "There’s plenty of food in the bush," she explains to a bored Sam and his grumbling stomach. Soon, Sam realizes through his own journey that the bush has an abundance of good things to offer—including adventure. Brimming with themes that will promote discussion among young readers, the ideas explored include journeys, the environment, storytelling, aboriginal knowledge of the bush, and intergenerational understanding.

Sally Morgan

About the Author


Sally Morgan is one of Australia's best-known Aboriginal artists and writers. 

For as long as she can remember, Sally wanted to paint and write but at school she was discouraged from expressing herself through her art because her teachers failed to see the promise in her individual style. It was not until she researched her family history and discovered her Aboriginal identity that she found meaning in her images and gained the confidence to pick up her paints again. Sally’s widely-acclaimed first book, My Place, has sold over half a million copies in Australia. Sally is a Professor at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies at the University of Western Australia and lives in Perth with her three children.
