I picked this book up for free on Amazon, and decided to take a walk down memory lane with it, and also read it as part of my contribution to the AWWC 2013. I first read it as a child in the seventies, when my mother introduced me to Mary Grant Bruce's Billabong books. I was intrigued to see if the book would live up to my memories of it.

As I read, I was impressed by the quality of the writing and also the story telling. One of my concerns in re-reading it as an adult, was whether I'd be annoyed
This the second book in the Billabong series. Although still a children's book, there are some surprisingly dark almost mature themes. A city cousin comes to visit Norah and her brother Jim out on the cattle ranch during school holidays. He is not a good addition to the group and his behavior ultimately creates some near-tragic situations.
