Product Description
When the army assigns Anthony's father to work on the topsecret atomic testing project in outback South Australia, the family relocates from Townsville to Woomera. His mother is unimpressed with outback life, but for Anthony, who has spent the past six years recovering from polio, it offers freedom and excitement. The controversial rocket and munitions testing captures Anthony's imagination. It seems like something out of a Superman comic, but is it really as safe as the government says?
