Ivan Southall was one of Australia's best-loved writers for children, writing real adventures with a gritty edge. Five teenagers are heading for a remote outback station for a weekend of adventuring. But when the pilot of the small plane they are travelling in suffers a sudden heart attack, the adventure becomes all too perilous. In a tale reminiscent of William Golding's Lord of the Flies (1954), the children begin to turn on each other. Can they put their differences to one side and make it back to safety?
