Now in new flexi-bound series edition! Tales of children lost in the bush have frightened and fascinated Australians public since colonial times. In August 1864, three children—Isaac aged nine, Jane aged seven and Frank aged three—survived nine long days and eight cold winter nights in the desolate scrub of the Wimmera region of west Victoria. The children walked for nearly 100 kilometres with no food and very little water. Against all odds, they were found alive. This is their inspiring story.
