DORT - INTRODUCTION TO THE CHAPTERS.
Copyright Paul Audcent 1997- 2005
The village of Dort lies at the southern base of a high Plateaux in the country of Tasmanica. It
has a river called the Dort River running through the south of the village. There are several
roads which lead to and from Dort connecting it to other parts of the country. The chapters
cover mainly the adventures of two friends called Lemoss and Flitter and Lemoss’s enchanted
goat N imblefax, but sometimes a chapter is written around other characters who live in or
near the village.
I have drawn a rough map out for my own use which is not part of this book to help me locate
people and places that have been referred to as I progressed with my writing. Most of the
immediate area around Dort is explored by the boys, however the far eastern area past Uncle
Todd’s farm has been left vacant, partly because I need some suggestions from the family of
readers as to what may exist in that Eastern and South Eastern part.
Mr.Dingle lives in the North East, and part of that land is high craggy hills with dense
forests which surround his home and garden.
The characters themselves are not based upon anyone in particular unless a dedication exists
in the chapter heading, giving credit to a person whose name and identity I’ve used. Rather
the characters have their own persona’s and both their identity and personality are left to your
imagination. Sometimes I will try to mirror human peculiarity and activity that exist in our
real world, but basically this is a tale for youthful people whatever their age! The tales
introduce special Tasmanica words, for instance the seasons of the year are called Sprung,
Sum, Ort, Chill. I realise it makes the reading a little more difficult however all countries use
different names and mine is no exception! Other names I’ve chosen are more descriptive to
the reader. Some parts of the tales require a certain level of knowledge, perhaps of people or
machinery, or indeed the meaning of some words. I believe the Tasmanica words in the main
are self explanatory!
So I hope you will use your imagination, and enjoy the people of Dort which was originally
written for my children, when I was away working in another town, and for you whom I write
for now. Copyright Paul Audcent. 1997- 2005
