Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0732021804, Audio Cassette)The year is 1934, the time of the Great Depression. The place is the settlement of miner's dugouts far from the nearest town in South Australia.
Fifteen-year-old Neil and his parents have come from Adelaide, hoping to strike it lucky, but the gold is elusive, the other miners intolerant, and Neil's only friend is a bully.
The American Ivan and his daughter Kitty arrive. They are mysterious, aloof. Soon rumors spread: Ivan killed a man; Kitty helped him rob banks. Neil is drawn to them despite the rumors. But Kitty saw him shoot the apostle bird. How can he convince her that it was an accident?
