In this riveting survival story, a brush fire threatens to engulf the countryside. Cut off from outside help, a group of children is called upon to demonstrate courage-or lack of it-in the face of impending disaster. Ivan Southall portrays his characters as neither heroes nor villains; rather, he focuses on their actions and interactions-how they survive or fall as a group. First published in 1966, Ash Road won the Australian Children's Book of the Year Award.
