Peter, Robyn and Billy are left without parents or guardians, the Child Welfare Department take charge of them. The Department have a plan for the children's future. The children are quite unhappy with the plan and set about finding a way out of the dilemma. With the resourcefulness typical of Australian bush kids, they plan and carry out a course of action that enables them to 'fly beneath the radar' of the authorities in such a way that they are never identified as missing. The children pack their gear on bicycles and travel the far outback regions of Australia looking for a home where they can live together.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kylie Reynolds

Kylie was a bush kid from the far outback of Australia. She loved riding her bicycle on the long distance camping trips - often of several weeks duration that took us to the next job.. She loved writing stories she could share with other children. Kylie did her schooling by correspondence (distance education). On our trips (bikes being our only transport by the way) she did her lessons sitting under any convenient shady shrub or tree or by firelight. Several times during the long summer school holidays we made camp in a city and Kylie would get a newspaper delivery round - filling in for some kid who was on holidays. She enjoyed joining in the free school holiday programs run for kids in the high rise flats. Kylie wrote “A Bunch of Battlers” based on her experiences in the bush and in the city, “Trekking To The Sunset”, “Rascal” and “Flashing Pedals” are fiction based on actual happenings in her life. When Kylie developed a fatal illness she showed great courage, always thinking of others. Kylie asked that I try to get her stories published so other children could enjoy them. On her website (http://www.mulgatraining.com.au/littlebanjo/) Kylie wrote of “my musings on life, God, poems, ponderings, & thinkings..” Kylie's Mum
