|About the Book|
Imagine your own private backyard over 4000 square miles in size. A pristine tropical river system flowing through it, teeming with prized sports fish and deadly crocodiles.A very basic road system largely consisting of a major gravel track sometimes maintained by the local authority. All other private roads have to be made and maintained by you.Your water supply is based around creeks and rivers that run wild during the wet tropical summers and slow down to crystal clear pools, some of them miles long, during the dry winter months.Your immense backyard starts at sea level by a crocodile infested tropical tributary with tides that vary by 40-50 feet, and climbs to almost two thousand feet above sea level where the winter nights will leave frost on your swag.When you travel off the beaten track you have a very real chance of being the first to find sacred indigenous art sites forgotten even by the descendants of those who last visited them. You may even stub your toe on a diamond in a region that provides more than one third of the worlds supply.This is a collection of just a few of the adventures a young Cameron Sinnamon experienced while living and working in the Kimberley. A Big Kids Playground, Down Under.
