Book Description HTML

The sexual molestation of a handsome young student by a female high school teacher in an isolated tropical Australian town, triggers assassinations, abductions and murder. Jarek runs a rainforest camp for adolescents where he introduces the youths to the joys of independence, freedom from irrational taboos, respect for nature and each other, and pride in natural masculine instincts. When Jarek realizes he prefers males, he leaves his girlfriend and moves to the coast. Unfortunately, he is followed by his small-town enemies who join forces with the President of WWI, a woman practiced in the art of ridding the world of non-compliant males.

I asked Rigby Taylor about the bush camp sequences, which are pretty revolutionary. He replied: Popular wisdom has it that by the age of seven a person’s character and values are set and impossible to modify to any great extent. However, there is a second chance to redeem an indoctrinated youth. During puberty, young people are able to rethink their lives, opinions, and beliefs, which is the reason for elaborate initiation ceremonies in so many cultures, and the ‘confirmation’ ceremonies of religious organisations. Unfortunately, these ceremonies are usually designed to reinforce what was implanted in the young child, and the adult grows into the sort of person society requires, valuing the things that will perpetuate the status quo, current power structures and social hierarchies. Jarek’s Bush Camps are examples of how, in only a week, an initiation ceremony that is completely honest, treats initiates as equally valuable individuals with respect for each other and their environment, can change youths in ways that can benefit both themselves and humanity. It isn’t wishful thinking, I have seen it and observed the beneficial effects on thirteen and fourteen year old boys. Unfortunately, societal and religious pressures, instead of weakening are on the comeback and any useful change in the way we educate our children is unlikely to occur, dooming us to a future as warlike, wasteful, insecure and unhappy as the past.
