Summary

When a family tragedy means Mick is sent to the outback to live with his grandpa, it looks as if he has a lonely life ahead of him. The cattle station is a tough place for a child, where nature is brutal and the men must work hard in the heat and dust. However, after a cyclone hits, things change for Mick.

Exploring the floodwater, he finds a lost puppy covered in mud and half drowned. Mick and his dog immediately become inseparable as they take on the adventures offered by their unusual home and the business of growing up together.

In this charming prequel to the much-loved Red Dog, Louis de Bernières tells the moving story of a young boy and his grandpa and the charismatic and entertaining dog that so many listeners hold close to their hearts.
