In 2008, after ten years of living the American Dream, a family of four from Boulder, Colorado embarked on a yearlong overland adventure Down Under.

Tag along with the Hyland clan for 35,000 literary kilometers as they crisscross the Australian continent, exploring nature, meeting people, homeschooling, and facing uncertainty—all the while learning how to live in the present.
