THE ROAD AWAITS
If you haven’t seen the desert,
Or gazed across the Bight.
Or listened to the silence,
Of the black Australia night…
This book is a collection of poems, and stories explaining the context of the poems and includes many beautiful photographs of Australia. The poems relate to traveling, as a family, in our little bus across Australia, in the days before the highway was a sealed across the Nullarbor Plains. We travelled Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia to Western Australia. The book retells the personal hardships that led to a life (for some time) on the road, and depicts the natural wonders seen along the way.
