Synopsis:

Winner of the New York Times Book Review Children's Book of the Year, 1966.

Commended title, American Library Association, 1966.

'The author has the power to get inside his characters.' The New York Times


'Conveys with insight the reactions, fears, perplexities, ignorances and behavior of children in a real adult world.' Washington Post

The novel is a chronicle of fire and panic, of intense and remarkable perception, and of almost inexhaustibly vivid descriptive language unforgettable.’ Wall St Journal

The description of the fire and the atmosphere of the day are so vividly described deservedly classic story.’ ReadPlus

It's hot and dry on Ash Road, where three boys taste their first independence, camping without adults. When they accidentally light a bushfire, none could guess how far it would go. They are forced to face the consequences with only each other to depend on.

Book Description Text Publishing, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. It's hot, dry and sweaty on Ash Road, where Graham, Harry and Wallace are getting their first taste of independence, camping, just the three of them. When they accidentally light a bushfire no one would have guessed how far it would go. All along Ash Road fathers go off to fight the fires and mothers help in the first aid centres. The children of Prescott are left alone, presumed safe, until it's the fire itself that reaches them. These children are forced to face a major crisis with only each other and the two old men left in their care. The best selling Ash Road is an action-packed adventure story, so evocative of rural Australia you can taste the eucalyptus. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # MM-40001749
