Jadianta, Lande and Jalmor, children of the Kadimakara People, are lost - swept away from their home by a fierce storm.
The children are now in the land of the Flying-fox people, a place filled with many brave warriors who are friends of the Kadimakara People, and home to the children's aunt, Kylie.
But when Lande is bitten by a snake, it is fortunate that the children are reunited with their aunt as she helps to heal Lande's snake bite and prepare the children for the rest of their adventurous journey.
This final story in the Journey of the Great Lakeseries by the late Percy Trezise is beautifully illustrated by Mary Lavis, and brings Jalmor, Lande and eventually, Jadianta, home following their long journey through the lands of the Kadimakara People, Dingo People, Magpie Goose People, Emu People, Snake People, Kangaroo People and Brolga People.
