Jadianta, his sister Lande and little brother Jalmor are fishing one day when a storm blows their raft out into the great lake. After many days, a gentler wind blows them onto the western shore, and from there their journey back to their people begins.
It has been suggested by scientists that during the Ice Age, the Gulf of Carpentaria dried up forming a land bridge between Australia and New Guinea. Aboriginal oral history also recalls a huge shallow lake, the aquatic life, people and events forming part of the legends. Percy Trezise has told many stories about these legends and area, and now he follows the adventures of three children across and around the great lake.
'Journey of the Great Lake' is a beautifully illustrated series which follows the journey of three children, providing a unique picture of Australia during this ancient time. Read the story of Jadianta, Lande and Jalmor, then follow their path as they travel to find their way home on the specially provided poster-sized map included with the book.
