Here are the judges comments:

‘A hugely engaging and enjoyable novel that conveys a terrific sense of place in its vivid descriptions of the brutality – and terrible beauty - of Australian outback life. The voice of the central character Danny is always convincing, and his relationship with his camel surprisingly moving. In fact so real are all the characters that they leave the reader wanting to know more.’
